Abstract

The Annual meeting of the Gerontological Society of America brings together four unique sections of the Society to present their latest research findings. With over 4000 in attendance this year, the meeting served as a major opportunity for cross-fertilization and exchange of ideas both within and between sections. This year, the Biological Sciences Section focused their symposia on 'Nutrition in aging and disease'. This translational topic was of great interest and drew robust audiences from each of the societies' sections (the Health Sciences, Behavioral and Social Sciences, as well as the Social Research, Policy and Practice sections). A summary of each of the sessions is presented.
