The Ethnogeriatrics SIG is open to anyone with an interest in the relationship between aging, ethnicity, clinical practice and research.  Participants will discover what projects are being developed by the SIG and Committee and offer suggestions for future AGS symposia.  New ideas are welcome. The group’s endeavors include recognizing challenges and developing practical solutions to providing appropriate care to different cultures and ethnicities in our diverse country. Members are encouraged to share and participate in the development of new educational materials focusing on key issues affecting ethnic minorities in the 21st century.
