The Conference Series on Aging in the Americas (CAA) utilizes research to augment knowledge about dimensions of healthful aging for people of Hispanic and Latin American descent. As this topic rapidly develops as a major policy and national budget issue, the CAA also aims to foster emerging scholars in the field. Iterations of the conference series, ICAA meetings, are held each year.
The 2020 ICAA is RESCHEDULED.
The meeting will be held September 23-24, 2021 and hosted by UTMB (the University of Texas Medical Branch) Galveston. ICAA Program Co-Organizers include: Kyriakos Markides (UTMB) firstname.lastname@example.org, Verónica Montes De Oca (UNAM) email@example.com, and Rogelio Saenz (UTSA) Rogelio.firstname.lastname@example.org.
