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 13th Annual Poster Session on Aging, to be held on Monday, May 15, from 4-6 p.m. in Ralston House, 3615 Chestnut Street.

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 one hundred UPHS researchers and healthcare professionals will be represented.

The Institute on Aging promotes understanding of the aging process and enhances the quality of life of the elderly through facilitating and supporting multifaceted, interdisciplinary research, education and clinical care programs.

These Poster Sessions are designed to acquaint the Penn community, as well as all others interested in aging, with the wide range of research, service and educational activities underway at the University.

The sessions are free and open to the public. For further information about participating in or attending the Poster Session, call Ed Horen at (215) 898-3188, e-mail to, or fax your query to (215) 573-8684.
