Join GSA in New Orleans for the nation's premier aging conference
Date:9/27/2013

The Gerontological Society of America (GSA) invites all journalists to attend its 66th Annual Scientific Meeting -- the country's largest interdisciplinary conference in the field of aging -- from November 20 to 24 in New Orleans. Media representatives may register free of charge.

An estimated 4,000 professionals are expected to attend the five-day gathering at the Sheraton New Orleans and New Orleans Marriott. The theme for 2014 is "Optimal Aging Through Research" and the program schedule contains more than 400 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 http://www.geron.org/press.

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

  • Press Briefings: GSA member experts will present new insights on the longevity dividend; the recent report from the U.S. Commission on Long-Term Care; the Kennedy assassination's impact on aging 50 years later; and the outcome of GSA projects related to adult vaccinations, over-the-counter medication use, and sleep health.

  • Keynote address: GSA will welcome Bruce Clark, DPH, who has emerged as one of America's foremost visionaries and authorities on the business and marketing implications of an aging population.

The complimentary media registration allows access to all scientific sessions and the Exhibit Hall. Badges and printed program materials can be picked up in the Press Room, which will be located in Salon 821 at the Sheraton.

Registration information is available at http://www.geron.org/press. GSA has locked in special conference rates at the two co-headquarters hotels, which will be available until October 31.

We look forward to seeing you in New Orleans!
