AAGP is excited to announce the theme of the 2018 AAGP Annual Meeting will be "Diversity & Inclusivity: Achieving Excellence in Geriatric Mental Health." We are making great strides in our understanding of the brain, its mechanisms, and pathologies. Breakthroughs are being made in our understanding of both normal and pathologic aging as well as in novel strategies to ameliorate age-related pathologies and to improve quality of life during normal aging.
The 2018 AAGP meeting will highlight the evolving science and practice of healthy aging by having presentations and discussion around the basic and applied science and practice of promoting and sustaining brain health during the aging process. Potential topics may include understanding how physical and mental exercise alters the aging process, cognitive training, mindfulness training as well as ways to integrate and train mental health professionals to be able to implement these research and clinical strategies in their practice.
In addition, the AAGP 2018 Program Committee also highlighted potential related topics:
