Discover the GSA 2021 Experience

The live online format will allow scholars from the U.S. and around the world to safely attend and engage fully in the meeting. We will utilize technology incorporating a video conference platform to maximize interaction and dialogue among attendees. The live online meeting will now allow the opportunity for all members, speakers, and attendees to safely attend and participate in this tour-de-force of aging scholarship.  

Whether your primary interest is biological sciences or social work, housing or health disparities, and so much more, there’s always something new and exciting to learn at GSA about issues that affect older people and how they live their lives. With all of the scholarship presented, it’s no wonder so many professionals in the field of aging return year after year. They find that attending GSA better equips them for the challenges ahead and energizes them to take them on.

"GSA’s Annual Meeting is one of the highlights of my year. It is like a family reunion – you get to connect with colleagues from across the world. Through the sessions and interest group meetings, I always leave feeling more informed on the state of science, more prepared to advance my own work, and recharged and recommitted to working with our older adult populations."

— M. Aaron Guest, PhD, MPH, MSW
