About the Conference

The Health and Aging Conference was developed as an effort to foster collaboration in aging research and education across CSU campuses in the Bay area including San Jose State University, San Francisco State University, CSU East Bay, and CSU Monterey Bay. This event will provide researchers with an excellent opportunity to introduce their work to colleagues in the region with similar interests in aging. This event will also have breakout sessions by special interests and it will be a great opportunity for networking and finding potential cross‐campus partners.


Abstracts are welcome from the following disciplines (but not limited to): communication disorders, gerontology, health science, justice studies, kinesiology, nursing, nutrition, occupational therapy, psychology,
social work, and sociology. 

We encourage your submission focused on health and aging in multicultural/diverse contexts ‐ e.g., empirical papers, conceptual/theoretical papers, model curriculum/program, and innovative pedagogy. There are two presentation formats: 1) Oral presentation (15 minutes); and 2) you can also propose a 40‐minute symposium/panel on a topic related to the theme of the conference.

This invitation is also extend to your graduate students. They can submit abstracts of their research on health and aging in multicultural/diverse contexts. Students whose paper abstracts are accepted for presentation will be given the opportunity to participate in a poster session

The deadline for submission is February 17, 2012. Your abstract will be refereed by the review committee and a decision letter will be out in early March 2012.
