AAGE at #GSA2016: program highlights

lensonagingEvery few years, the Gerontological Society of America and the American Anthropological Association are scheduled for the exact same dates, and we have to make a difficult choice. A small contingent of anthropologists will be representing AAGE this year at #GSA2016, including Iveris Martinez who ends her tenure as President (but luckily stays around in our executive board as past president). Here you can find more information about our AAGE social events, business meeting and presentations by members.

The GSA dinner/meeting for AAGE members will be Thursday, November 17, 2016. If you are interested, please gather by the registration desk of the Sheraton New Orleans Hotel at 7pm.

If you plan to be at GSA or just are curious about what anthropology presentations are happening, take a look at this selection assembled by our meeting liason, Peggy Perkinson.
