OGA Roundtable Discussions on Aging
Monday, March 2nd - Portland State University
Please come join the Oregon Gerontological Association on Monday, March 2nd, from 4:00-6:00 p.m. at Portland State University for a networking and educational event (Urban Center, 506 SW Mill St, 2nd Floor, Parson's Gallery). We will have rotating roundtable discussions addressing provocative questions and timely issues related to our work in the field of aging. The topics will be decided upon at the beginning of the event by suggestions made and chosen by board members, professionals, students (i.e., those in attendance). And, of course, there will be time for socializing and conviviality!
The event is free and coffee will be provided to help stimulate discussion. Please sign up under the "calendar of events/register here!" tab.
The Oregon Gerontological Association is hosting its annual conference
on May 1st, 2015. The focus will be on environments and aging and we

Additional information will be made available in the near future.
We hope that 2015 will be a great year for the aging network in Oregon
