The Australian Association of Gerontology (AAG) invites you to join us at our 46th National Conference at the SMC Conference & Function Centre, Sydney, from the 27th – 29th November 2013.
The AAG is Australia’s peak national body linking professionals working across the multidisciplinary fields of ageing. The AAG’s goal is to expand knowledge of ageing in order to improve the experience of ageing. With over 800 members across every State and Territory in Australia, our members include geriatricians, academics, researchers, nurses, policy makers, allied health professionals, social workers, consultants and other gerontology specialists. The AAG is a member of the International Association of Gerontology and Geriatrics.
The conference theme for 2013 is ‘Grey Expectations: Ageing in the 21st Century’. As Australia adjusts to the new realities of an ageing population, this conference will address some of the key questions this change raises for ageing in the 21st century. What can we expect of governments, corporations, the community, our families – and ourselves – as we grow older in the 21st century? What can we learn from current biomedical, technological and social research about what to expect for our health and quality of life?
