2024 Annual Meeting

Thank you to everyone who attended the 2024 Annual Meeting in Atlanta, which took place from March 15-18, 2024. This year's meeting theme was "Reimagining Geriatric Mental Health: Innovations to promote the well-being of caregivers and patients."

In a post-pandemic world, the 2024 Annual Meeting focused on innovation to reduce stress and trauma and promote brain health and well-being in millions of aging adults and caregivers in the United States and around the world. We capitalized on transformative initiatives in education, clinical practice, and research to promote brain health awareness among healthcare providers and the American families that lay the foundation for healthy and positive aging across all strata of our society and the world. The 2024 Annual Meeting provided a stimulating forum and an opportunity to share our collective wisdom and passion for our profession.

The Annual Meeting offered cutting-edge educational programming for a broad audience of allied health professionals, including geriatric and general psychiatrists, medical students, residents and fellows, psychologists, nurse practitioners, social workers, and researchers. We also encouraged general psychiatry residents and medical students with a special interest in the mental health treatment of older adults to attend our annual meeting. Whether you work in a private hospital, clinic, state mental health facility, skilled nursing facility, or long-term care setting, or private practice, the AAGP Annual Meeting had something to offer you.

We look forward to seeing you at future AAGP events!
