CAG2015: From Possibility to Practice in Aging

Our conference travels across Canada and will not return to Alberta for some time so this is a good opportunity to attend while the conference is more local. The CAG is delighted to promote your events and resources in return.

We still have exhibiting and sponsorship opportunities available for the conference; with over 500 abstracts submitted, we are expecting a good crowd of leaders in gerontology and geriatrics.
