While we’re sorry the AGS 2020 Annual Scientific Meeting has been canceled, the AGS team has been hard at work on new opportunities to network, communicate, and collaborate—both this year and as we look toward #AGS21 (May 13-15, 2021; Chicago, IL).
There’s nothing like seeing our members face-to-face, but we hope our short-term and long-term plans, outlined briefly below, will not only advance cutting-edge expertise but also reinforce that our community is strongest when we’re together (even when we’re apart):
- VIRTUAL SESSIONS: We’re excited to announce a series of virtual events this May and June covering key highlights from the original #AGS20 program. Details will be emailed to AGS members, our original meeting registrants, and subscribers to our AGS Annual Scientific Meeting updates. You can access recordings to these sessions as they become available in the blue box below.
- Join us for Preventing Serious Fall Injuries: Primary Findings from the STRIDE Study, Wed., July 15, 6-7:15 PM ET. Register for the webinar here.
- SPECIAL INTEREST GROUP SESSIONS: Find the full schedule of virtual SIG meetings here. Open to all AGS members, these sessions are a great time to learn about AGS SIGs and become more involved.
- HONORING AWARDEES & PRESENTERS: We hope you’ll join us in continuing to celebrate our abstract presenters and 2020 awardees, who put tremendous time and effort into their contributions to our field.
- LEVERAGING HARD WORK FROM 2020: Everyone worked tirelessly on a 2020 meeting agenda that still has us #AGSProud. To honor that work, we’ll be bringing to #AGS21 almost all pre-conference sessions and #AGS20 symposia and workshops. Moderators and presenters will be contacted soon with more details.
- SUPPORTING THE LATEST SCIENCE & INNOVATION: With our #AGS20 abstracts available for review thanks to JAGS, we’re excited to welcome new research submissions for poster and paper sessions at #AGS21. Our call for abstracts will be issued this fall.
If you have additional questions, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As we continue to navigate these difficult times, we remain grateful for such a warm and caring community—and as committed as ever to showing and supporting that community’s strength. We look forward to meeting you online, in-person, and wherever we can as we work together to continue advancing high-quality, person-centered care for all older adults.
