Student Researcher Fund

The Student Researcher Fund supports trainees in the healthcare fields who are invited to attend the American Geriatrics Society’s Annual Scientific Meeting and present their geriatrics research at a special poster session.   These students are studying in the fields of medicine, nursing, social work, pharmacy, among others.

Student researchers who attend the annual meeting have the opportunity to interact with geriatrics professionals from a range of disciplines.  At the meeting, they can attend any number of sessions about cutting edge research, innovations in clinical care, as well as widen their network for educational and career opportunities.  This experience can be pivotal for students who are contemplating further specialization of their training in geriatrics.

In addition to supporting the poster session, the Fund provides travel stipends to the top 50 student abstracts with the highest scores as determined by the abstract committee.

Please consider donating to the fund to help support a new generation of healthcare professionals embarking on a career in geriatrics.
