The 66th Annual Meeting for the Gerontological Society of America (GSA) takes place in New Orleans on November 20-24, 2013. As lawyers and law professors are aware, "Elder Law" is an inherently multi-disciplinary field. The GSA meeting is an opportunity to discover and share the latest in interdisciplinary research on medicine, clinical care, basic science, social science, behavioral science, and public policy for issues connected to aging. The meeting attracts an international audience, with more than 4,000 attendees, and some 400 substantive sessions.
The theme for this year's meeting is "Optimal Aging through Research," and there is a special workshop on the topic of family caregiving for persons with dementia, which should be particularly interesting for those seeking the latest in evidentiary bases for state or federal legislation to support caregivers. Further, the deadline for "late-breaking" abstracts for poster submissions is September 15.
Full details on the annual meeting are available at GSA's website.
