We invite you to attend the 31st Annual Clinical Update in Geriatric Medicine conference scheduled for March 23 to 24, 2023. Although the program is presented in a virtual format, the goal is unchanged: to help you provide superb care to older adults by ensuring that each lecture, symposium, and breakout session provides evidence-based “pearls” that you can immediately incorporate into your practice.

Join us from the comfort of your home or office for an outstanding agenda of lectures and panel discussions. This AGS award-winning course is a collaboration between The University of Pittsburgh, the AGS state chapter, and many healthcare organizations.

Many ingredients contribute to the popularity of this annual conference:

  • It focuses on the challenges of caring for older adults, and incorporates new topics suggested by past attendees
  • It is designed by a multidisciplinary group of clinicians, academics, and payers
  • It showcases approaches that are both state of the art and feasible, i.e., ones you can incorporate immediately
  • It is delivered by speakers selected not just for their expertise but also for their ability to teach
  • Most of the speakers are nationally/internationally renowned
  • It includes a variety of formats, including plenary and keynote talks, multiple smaller breakout sessions, and even opportunities for attendees to present their most challenging cases to subspecialists who are experts in both their own field and geriatrics

We hope you will register for what promises to be a superb conference. Planning is underway - check back soon for more details!
