The Minnesota Gerontological Society (MGS) invites you or someone you know in gerontology or an aging-related field to submit a session abstract for the Poster Session at the 2018 Conference. Around 500 participants from various disciplines typically attend the yearly MGS conference. For the 2018 Conference, we will be featuring the posters in a much more visible and extended way than in past years. The posters will be displayed in the main hall during lunch and during extended breaks. In addition, a break-out session will be dedicated to posters in which each presenter will make a brief presentation on their research.
A word from Tanya Rand, Coordinator of Aging Services, School of Social Work, St. Catherine University/University of St. Thomas:
“As the Coordinator for Aging Services at SCU/UST, sharing this poster opportunity with one of our student scholars last year was an amazing experience for both of us. One of the primary goals of our aging scholars program is to develop future leaders in gero-practice. Through presenting a poster, this student not only was able to live into that leadership role through her scholarship, she also gained a great networking opportunity! In fact, she met her clinical field work instructor (and now employer) via this presentation opportunity!”
