From the OAGE President

I would like to welcome you to attend the 42nd OAGE conference, The Faces of Aging: Policy and Politics. We would like to encourage you to submit abstracts for presentations along this, or other aging related themes. Policy and aging related research may take on many forms. We encourage your abstract submissions.

We have several options for presentations. We offer individual oral and poster presentations, workshops, and research symposia. We encourage researchers, students, policy makers, and researchers to submit their work for consideration at our conference. The conference will be held on March 22-23 at the University of Akron. Our conference is a great way to present cutting edge ideas in aging and to network with other professionals and students in aging. Additional details are available on our website.
