PACE Gerontology Program hosts successful campus event in conjunction with IAGG 2017

The International Association of Gerontology and Geriatrics held its 2017 World Congress on Gerontology and Geriatrics (IAGG) in San Francisco in July 2017. This is the premiere conference for gerontology and geriatrics professionals, with more than 6,000 delegates in attendance. In conjunction with the conference, SF State hosted a local educational trip, which featured faculty research, policy and practice presentations; student and alumni research posters; and a showcase of work by community partners in aging. Faculty presentations by Associate Professor Kate Hamel, Professor Emerita Anabel Pelham, Associate Professor Emerita Donna Schafer and Professor and Coordinator of Gerontology Darlene Yee-Melichar were well received by more than 65 participants from 14 countries. In addition, there was a tour of the MAREY Lab in Gym 150. The event was organized by a student planning team, advised by Yee-Melichar.
