A Word on Support

As a non-profit organization, we operate on razor-thin budgets and rely on volunteers to bring the community  top-quality meetings and information on new research.  The demands on the aging research community are growing with public need and the Association is poised to become a key resource and voice for the aging research community in a globally aging world.  Your help, through joining as a member, or fund donation or meeting financial assistance, will help us meet this challenge and try to accelerate the development of solutions able to extend the healthy years of life. 

Registration open

Please prepare your poster to be no more than 60 " wide and 40" high to allow to fit on the board.
