Join GSA in Boston for the nation's premier aging conference
Date:9/20/2011

The Gerontological Society of America (GSA) invites all journalists to attend its 64th Annual Scientific Meeting the country's largest interdisciplinary conference in the field of aging from November 18 to 22 in Boston, MA. Media representatives may register free of charge.

An estimated 3,500 professionals are expected to attend the five-day gathering at the John B. Hynes Veterans Memorial Convention Center and Sheraton Boston Hotel. The theme for 2011 is "Lifestyle → Lifespan" and the program schedule contains more than 500 scientific sessions featuring research presented for the first time. Noteworthy meeting highlights include:

A wealth of story ideas: GSA offers direct access to leading authorities and new discoveries in gerontology. Explore the latest developments related to Social Security and retirement, long-term care, human longevity, and much more. View the complete list of sessions at www.geron.org/press.

Networking opportunities: The Press Room, which serves as a base of operations for reporters, provides a venue for discussion about emerging issues on the aging beat.

Special guests: GSA will welcome internationally recognized explorer and National Geographic writer Dan Buettner as the keynote speaker. Buettner is the best-selling author of "The Blue Zones: Lessons for Living Longer from the People Who've Lived the Longest." And U.S. Assistant Secretary for Aging Kathy Greenlee will engage in a question-and-answer dialogue with the audience at a special session co-sponsored by the National Council on Aging, "The Crossroads of Research, Policy, and Practice: The Future of the Older Americans Act and Title IV Programs for Vulnerable Older Adults."

A unique business forum: As the first of 77 million baby boomers reach their encore years, leading-edge companies are rethinking aging and redesigning products, services, and environments to meet their changing needs and desires. GSA's Aging Means Business forum will explore how strong design can successfully launch products and services and set best practices. Matthias Hollwich, SBA, principal of the New York-based architecture and concept design firm Hollwich Kushner, and Hunter Tura, MArch, president and CEO of Bruce Mau Design, Inc., will deliver the joint keynote address.

The complimentary media registration allows access to all scientific sessions and the Exhibit Hall. Badges and printed program materials can be picked up the Press Room, which will be located in Hampton A and B at the Sheraton.

Registration information is available at www.geron.org/press. GSA has locked in special conference rates at the Sheraton and the Westin Copley Place, which will be available until October 21.
