I would like to extend an invitation to you to attend and contribute to our 38th Annual Meeting of the Southern Gerontological Society that will be held April 6 – 9, 2017 in Asheville, NC. The annual meeting will be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton in the Biltmore Village district and we look forward to being your host this spring. The UNC Charlotte Gerontology program will have an exhibit table to promote the new ONLINE Graduate Certificate in Gerontology.
The theme this year is New Horizons in Aging: Advances in Research and Practice. We encourage those who are examining critical aspects affecting the older adult population through innovative research and those using creative approaches and programming to address the needs of this population to share your work at our meeting.
As you may already know, the Southern Gerontological Society prides itself in being a welcoming and supportive network of students, researchers, practitioners, policymakers, and other gerontology professionals. We embrace a diversity of perspectives and want to highlight your work in an effort to promote applied research and effective practice that together expand our understanding of the experiences of older adults and their families. As such, we promise a dynamic and rewarding conference experience!
