2015 Healthy Aging Summit: Call for Abstracts

December 8, 2014
2015 Healthy Aging Summit: Call for Abstracts
The HHS Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion requests abstracts addressing the science of healthy aging for presentation at the 2015 Healthy Aging Summit, July 27-28, 2015, in Washington, DC.
We seek “innovative presentations” from a wide array of subject matter experts across a multitude of disciplines, both federal and non-federal. While public health and health care are key to understanding complex issues around aging, there is much to learn from experts across sectors such as transportation, environment, housing, justice, and faith-based partners.
Whether you are a clinician or consumer, public health official or constituent, educator or student, caregiver or care receiver, your involvement at this Summit will help to ensure that all Americans live longer, healthier lives.
  • The 2015 Healthy Aging Summit goals are to:
  • Explore the science on healthy aging;
  • Identify knowledge gaps that need to be filled;
  • Promote prevention in improving quality of life in later years; and
  • Mobilize action to improve the delivery of care for those aging in place or in transition between care settings.
These goals should be addressed in submissions. Presentations that focus on collaboration with diverse partners and have international applications are encouraged.
Submission Deadline: Monday, February 2, 2015, 11:59 p.m. ET.
