A Call to Action for Gerontologists

AARP is proud to sponsor IAGG because we believe that gerontologists and geriatricians can play an important role in creating a new reality of aging. During the IAGG conference, AARP will share tools, research and resources on a range of issues impacting healthy aging. The challenge for us all is to translate the information, the research and knowledge we have about living and aging well into creating innovative products and services that enhance our well-being and to use them to live well each and every day.
