The theme of the session this year is "Building Research Networks In Your Specialty.” A multidisciplinary panel of specialists will speak about how to build an aging-focused research network in a specialty, with examples provided of successful research networks. The talks will be followed by a panel discussion and small round table breakouts with the individual speakers. Breakout sessions will be followed by a talk from a National Institute on Aging (NIA) program officer about funding opportunities. All medical and surgical subspecialists, including geriatricians, are encouraged to attend. Breakfast will be provided.
