This session will provide an update on AGS’ primary areas of public policy focus: Medicare payment, geriatrics health professions programs, support for aging research, and quality metrics for older adults. The session will include a summary of how AGS identifies and prioritizes issues into those where the Society leads; those where the society is actively working, typically in collaboration; and those where the society looks for opportunities to support the work of others. Learning Objectives: (1) describe legislative and regulatory opportunities for influencing public policy; (2) discuss how AGS incorporates new public policy priorities into its existing advocacy efforts; and (3) review how the Society works in coalition.
