Event Overview
Welcome message:

The objective of the course is to explore treatment challenges and perspectives for the growing older population. There is a gap between
what clinicians have been taught and recent findings on the trajectory of aging in our society. Thus, clinicians need to be updated on the
latest advances in several areas of geriatric practice in order to best serve the needs of their patients. Through didactic lectures, case
studies, panel discussions, and question and answer sessions, participants will gain information to help treat the aging population.
