The Annual Scientific Meeting Program Committee bears final responsibility for accepting or rejecting proposals submitted for the 2020 Annual Scientific Meeting Program. Submission of a proposal does not guarantee placement on the program. Additionally, the Committee reserves the right to ask that modifications be made to accepted proposals.

Session Content Reminder

Proposals containing clinical recommendations must be based on evidence that is accepted within the profession of medicine as adequate justification for their use. All scientific research referred to, reported or used in support or justification of a patient care recommendation must conform to the generally accepted standards of experimental design, data collection and analysis.

The AGS is an interprofessional organization and an effort should be made to ensure that the content of talks is pertinent to multiple disciplines. Also, it is important that presentations address cultural competence in geriatric practice.
