The Arizona Geriatrics Society is a professional non-profit organization that represents all geriatric healthcare professionals -- physicians, psychologists, dentists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, researchers, nurses, social workers, occupational and physical therapists, long term care and assisted living facilities administrators, educators and students.
AzGS advances geriatric healthcare by offering continuing medical education conferences -- a Spring Conference in Tucson as well as its signature event in Phoenix -- the two day Annual Fall Symposium. It also offers its members a number of educational dinner programs yearly, in both Phoenix and in Tucson. This year we are working toward increased virtual learning and advocacy.
Belonging to a professional organization provide opportunities for life long learning, increased interactions with colleagues, and encountering new perspectives and ideas. Active participation with AZGS, can add to your professional satisfaction as you help us on our mission to optimize the care of older adults.
