Poster Session on Aging

Researchers in aging, as well as practitioners and educators, will present their work in poster format in the Institute on Aging's Twelfth Annual Poster Session, to be held on May 13 from 4 to 6 p.m. in Ralston House, 3615 Chestnut Street. Faculty will be on hand to discuss their work with visitors.

All those connected with the University of Pennsylvania Health System are invited to submit proposals for inclusion in the conference. Recently affiliated institutions are particularly welcome to participate and/or attend. Presentations at past poster sessions have ranged from the latest research on Alzheimer's disease to studies comparing institutionalization with in-home care. In addition, posters depicting a variety of programs related to care and treatment of the elderly will be presented. It is expected that this year, as in the past, the work of over a hundred UPHS researchers and healthcare professionals will be represented.

The sessions are free and open to the public. For additional information about participating in or attending call Ed Horen at (215) 898-3188 or fax queries to (215) 573-8684.
