ASA's educational programs provide the highest level of training to strengthen the skills and knowledge of those working in the field of aging. Through our conferences, webinars and publications, ASA is committed to being the premier resource for education, training and information on aging-related issues. It carries out this commitment through programs such as the annual Aging in America Conference and web seminars that offer a wealth of practical knowledge and ideas that professionals can put into practice right away to improve their organizations, businesses, and services to older adults and their families.
The Aging in America Conference, the annual conference of the America Society on Aging, is the largest gathering of a diverse, multidisciplinary community of professionals from the fields of aging, healthcare and education, along with business leaders from across the United States. Thousands of professionals from healthcare, long-term care, social services, educational and research institutions, business and government converge to learn about cutting-edge topics, network and share resources.
ASA's web seminars focus on topical issues and occur throughout the year. All web seminars are free to ASA members and many sponsored seminars are also free to the public.
