ASA and Aging in America Support Students, Emerging Professionals


Eisenstein, Amy, Yeh, Jarmin, Aging Today


The 2011 Aging in America Conference is quickly approaching. Along with their colleagues, students from across the country are busy preparing to present poster sessions and workshops at the conference. More than 300 students attended the 2010 conference, and we are expecting a record-breaking student population for 201 1.

The San Francisco group for emerging professionals, Legacy, will be cohosting a networking event with ASA, the SIG and the New York Academy of Medicine. Other regional groups, such as the Chicago Bridge and GenPhilly, are helping to support this event. Last year's event, which was held in Chicago, was well-received and we look forward to a successful 201 1 networking session. …
