Date:9/16/2010

The Gerontological Society of America (GSA) invites all journalists to attend its 63rd Annual Scientific Meeting the country's largest interdisciplinary conference in the field of aging from November 19 to 23 in New Orleans, LA. Media representatives may register free of charge.

An estimated 3,500 professionals are expected to attend the five-day gathering at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside. The theme for 2010 is "Transitions of Care Across the Aging Continuum" 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 health care reform, long-term care, retirement security, and much more. A list of planned press briefings will be issued when the schedule is finalized.

  • 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: U.S. Assistant Secretary for Aging Kathy Greenlee will deliver the keynote address at the President's Opening Plenary Session, and actor, playwright, and professor Anna Deavere Smith will headline a special evening event celebrating GSA's 65th anniversary.

  • A unique business forum: GSA has scheduled a day-long session for renowned experts on economics, gerontology, and consumer behavior to engage in a dialogue with national and local business leaders focused on America's senior population. Noteworthy presenters include Gary Moulton, PhD, product manager for Microsoft's Trustworthy Computing Group; Joseph Coughlin, PhD, founder of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology AgeLab; and Mary Furlong, EdD, president and CEO of the strategic communications firm Mary Furlong & Associates.

The complimentary media registration allows access to all sessions (with the exception of ticketed events and pre-conference workshops) and the Exhibit Hall. Badges and printed program materials can be picked up the Press Room, which will be located in Marlborough B at the Hilton.

Registration information, as well as an online meeting planner, is available at www.geron.org/press. GSA has locked in special conference rates at three area hotels, which will be available until October 29.
