GSA is the oldest and largest interdisciplinary organization devoted to research, education, and practice in the field of aging. GSA’s principal mission — and that of its 5,500 members — is to promote the study of aging and disseminate the kinds of information that scientists, decision makers, and the general public need to come up with smart solutions to the challenges they face.
Founded in 1945, GSA is the driving force behind advancing innovation in aging — both domestically and internationally. Its members come from more than 50 countries.
They foster collaboration between physicians, nurses, biologists, behavioral and social scientists, psychologists, social workers, economists, policy experts, those who study the humanities and the arts, and many other scholars and researchers in aging. GSA believes the intersection of research from diverse areas is the best way to foster ingenuity, achieve the greatest impact, and promote healthy aging.
