31st Annual Virtual Clinical Update in Geriatric Medicine

March 23-24, 2023

The fastest growing segment of the population comprises individuals over age 85. The purpose of our annual conference is to provide an evidence-based approach to help clinicians take exceptional care of these often complex and frail individuals. 

This year, we are excited to bring you the 31st Clinical Update in Geriatric Medicine in a virtual format. Our course directors and conference planning team have created a program that will deliver a practical as well as an evidence-based approach. This year’s conference also includes keynotes, Q&A sessions, vendor halls, and opportunities to engage in conversations with speakers, exhibitors, and fellow attendees.
