The Australian Association of Gerontology (AAG) is hosting its 47th National Conference in Adelaide from Wednesday 26 to Friday 28 November 2014. The theme for this year’s conference is “50 Not Out – aiming for a century!”.
The past 10 years has seen some significant change at the esteemed Adelaide Oval, culminating in the re-launch of this now world class venue. The 2014 AAG National Conference will follow through on this theme of change by celebrating ‘good innings’ for the AAG, and looking forward to times of change and renewal for ageing, gerontology and ageing policy.
The AAG Conference is truly multidisciplinary and brings together people with a wide range of professional interests. This unique meeting of the minds offers delegates an exciting opportunity to make new connections with people and ideas. We’ve listened to feedback from previous conferences and will ensure that ample time is built into the program to allow engagement with presenters and discussions with other delegates.
New technologies, innovative thinking, medical advances, changing social structures, and shifts in policies and community attitudes all impact on the way we view and manage ageing today. The 47th AAG National
Conference will offer opportunities to discuss these innovations and changes and to showcase what makes ‘good innings’ in ageing.
