The Gerontological Society of America (GSA) invites all journalists to attend its 2020 Annual Scientific Meeting Online — the country’s largest interdisciplinary conference in the field of aging — from November 4 to 7. Media representatives intending to cover the meeting may register free of charge.

Several thousand professionals from around the world are expected to attend the four-day event. The theme for 2020 is «Turning 75: Why Age Matters» (in recognition of GSA’s 75th anniversary) and the program schedule contains hundreds of scientific sessions featuring research presented for the first time. Noteworthy meeting highlights include:

  • A wealth of story ideas: GSA offers direct access to leading authorities and new discoveries in gerontology. Explore the latest developments related to COVID-19, vaccines, telehealth, innovative technologies, Social Security and retirement, Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, family caregiving, long-term care, human longevity, and much more. A searchable program of all meeting sessions will be launched by the end of October.
  • Interactivity with researchers: Every scientific session will offer live discussions where interested meeting attendees can connect in real time with session presenters. The conversation can also continue afterward through discussion forums.
  • Extended access to programming: Meeting content will be available beginning October 28 to allow registrants to view presentations on demand, enabling them to select which of the live presenter discussions they wish to attend. And meeting content will remain available until the end of 2020.

The complimentary media registration allows access to all scientific sessions and the virtual exhibit hall. Registration information is available at http://www.geron.org/press.

We look forward to seeing you online!
