Welcome Message from Convenor
On behalf of the Organising Committee of the 2016 Annual Scientific Meeting for the Australian and New Zealand Society of Geriatric Medicine (ANZSGM), we are delighted to invite you to participate in our upcoming meeting. This premier conference for Geriatric Medicine in Australasia will be held in Cairns from 1-3 June 2016 at the Cairns Convention Centre, Queensland.
Our meeting theme, "The AGEnder Paradox", will showcase the intersection of gender issues and ageing, examining the question of how women and men age differently, and highlighting the impact these differences bring to bear on the medical care of both sexes as they age. The Meeting will bring together a diverse collection of expert speakers in the field of Geriatric Medicine and related disciplines, along with delegates from across Australia, New Zealand and the Asia-Pacific region. Queensland’s spectacular tropical far north promises to provide the perfect backdrop.
Heading the line-up of distinguished speakers are Professor Thomas Perls from the University of Boston, and Professor Jean Woo from the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Professor Perls is one of the world’s foremost experts on human exceptional longevity; Professor Woo is a pioneer of Geriatric Medicine in Asia; both have formidable clinical and research experience underpinning their perspectives on the conference theme.
The ANZSGM is a Professional Body with a growing membership approaching 1000. The ASM already constitutes one of the major continuing professional development activities for the Society’s members; we expect to attract approximately 400 delegates in 2016, including Geriatricians, Rehabilitation Physicians, General Practitioners, Doctors in Training, Nurses and Allied Health Professionals.
We look forward to seeing you in Cairns!
