Rochelle Buffenstein PhD.
On behalf of the Board of the American Aging Association, it is my great pleasure to extend to you all a warm welcome to San Antonio, Texas and the 43rd Annual Meeting of the American Aging Association. San Antonio has long been recognized as home to multidisciplinary and integrative research on aging. Featured at this meeting are internationally renowned scientists from across the globe, sharing with us new and exciting hot topics in the biology of aging. I sincerely hope you will find the program stimulating and that the scientific interactions made here will forge new collaborative research endeavors in our quest to find answers to promote healthier aging.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the many people who have helped with the organization of this meeting, notably including the support staff from the Alliance for Aging Research.
Lastly, as an aging world seeks solutions to mitigate the impact of age-associated degenerative diseases, I encourage you to consider the many ways to become more active in our Association. In this way, the brain trust that our collective expertise in aging represents can be there to help when we are called upon. I invite each and everyone attending and participating in this meeting to become a member of our Society. Please join us at the Membership Meeting and do ask any of the Board Members questions while you are here as to how you might contribute to ensure the continued growth and success of the American Aging Association. Together we can advocate for greater support for aging research, and move towards a better understanding of the biological processes that contribute to aging and achieve our goals of finding effective interventions to slow the aging process.
