Call for Papers: International Conference on Aging in the Americas

Posted: 2/12/2018 (Conference)

The Conference Series on Aging in the Americas (CAA) is aimed at utilizing research to augment knowledge about dimensions of healthful aging for people of Hispanic and Latin American descent and fostering emerging scholars in the field as this topic rapidly develops as a major policy and national budget issue.

Each CAA installment or ICAA has several goals, one is to promote interdisciplinary collaboration by gathering a broad array of researchers in the fields of Hispanic health, health care policy, and behavioral and social aspects of aging into a single forum to exchange ideas and foster collaborative efforts aimed at addressing key issues affecting the health of aged Hispanics. The conference research agenda is unique in its focus on the aging population in the United States and Mexico and has important implications for the health and well-being of older Hispanic adults and their families.

The University of Arizona in partnership with the UT Austin, UCLA, USC, and UTMB will host the 2018 International Conference on Aging in the Americas.
