The conference will feature keynote speakers and individual sessions. The HPGS Biennial Conference is intended for professional and practioners in the aging network, health and human service field, businesses, government agencies, non-profits and faith-based organizations serving seniors, applied researchers, students in gerontology, advocates for seniors, and seniors themselves. It will be held virtually on September 15 & 16, 2021.
