Gerontological Society Of America To Host The Nation’s Premier Aging Conference In New Orleans
NEW ORLEANS – An estimated 4,000 professionals are expected to attend The Gerontological Society of America’s (GSA) five-day conference at the New Orleans Marriott and Sheraton New Orleans from Wednesday, Nov. 16, through Sunday, Nov. 20, 2016, in New Orleans.
The GSA is the nation's oldest and largest interdisciplinary organization devoted to research, education, and practice in the field of aging. The principal mission of the Society — and its 5,500+ members — is to advance the study of aging and disseminate information among scientists, decision makers, and the general public. GSA’s structure also includes a policy institute, the National Academy on an Aging Society, and an educational branch, the Association for Gerontology in Higher Education.
The theme for 2016 is “New Lens on Aging: Changing Attitudes, Expanding Possibilities” and the program schedule contains more than 450 scientific sessions featuring research presented for the first time.
GSA will welcome David Bornstein, a journalist and author who focuses on social innovation. He co-authors the “Fixes” column in The New York Times Opinionator section, which explores and analyzes potential solutions to major social problems. He is the co-founder of the Solutions Journalism Network, which supports journalists who report on constructive responses to social problems.
