Join GSA in San Diego for the Nation's Premier Aging Conference!
Date:9/20/2012

The Gerontological Society of America (GSA) invites all journalists to attend its 65th Annual Scientific Meeting the country's largest interdisciplinary conference in the field of aging from November 14 to 18 in San Diego. Media representatives may register free of charge.

An estimated 4,000 professionals are expected to attend the five-day gathering at the San Diego Convention Center. The theme for 2012 is "Charting New Frontiers in Aging" 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, holds daily press briefings and provides a venue for discussion about emerging issues on the aging beat.
  • Keynote address: GSA will welcome educator and author James Fowler, PhD, who co-wrote (with Nicholas Christakis) the best-selling book "Connected: The Surprising Power of Our Social Networks and How They Shape Our Lives." He will reveal the dynamics of these networks and present compelling evidence for our profound influence on one another's health, wealth, and even happiness.
  • Post-election analysis: The meeting is taking place the week following the 2012 election. What kind of history will those voted into office make? Which age group had the greatest impact on the election and what might that mean for future policies? Will Social Security and other entitlement programs be spotlighted or put on the backburner in light of the results? During GSA's popular Policy Series, the nation's top experts on aging will analyze what the election outcomes infer about rising issue priorities, and anticipate how the elected politicians will interpret their election-day victories.

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 Room 5A at the Convention Center.

Registration information is available at www.geron.org/press. GSA has locked in special conference rates at three nearby hotels, which will be available until October 19.

We look forward to seeing you in San Diego!
