The GUMC Center for Healthy Aging, the Aging and Alzheimer’s Research Training Program, the Georgetown Aging and Health Program, and the Georgetown Lombardi Institute for Cancer and Aging Research are pleased to sponsor our first annual symposium focused on aging.

This symposium is open to the entire Georgetown University community and its community partners. Presenters will be addressing critical issues in aging research, policy and care from cells to society and include transdisciplinary researchers from several Georgetown Schools, cross-campus programs, community groups, MedStar Health and the NIH.

Our goal is to have attendees get to know others interested in aging, describe resources, and stimulate people coming together to form new teams to address challenges of an aging society.

The symposium will include:

  • Panel discussions
  • Research talks
  • Posters
  • Networking time
  • Lunch

Please use this link to register. The symposium is offered at no cost and is open to all members of the Georgetown community and our community collaborators and partners.
