Tuesday National Organization Roundtable Topics (By Invitation Only)
The Gerontological Society of America (GSA) launched its Oral Health Initiative in 2016. The goal is to promote oral and general health and quality of life outcomes in older adults by focusing all members of the health care team on inter-professional whole-person care that recognizes the inherent connection between oral and systemic health. This multi-faceted initiative is comprised in interrelated components including a work group, publications, presentations, online collection of resources and engagement with many stakeholders. GSA is the nations oldest and largest multidisciplinary organization devoted to research, education and practice in the aging field. At this roundtable we will invite participants to share information about their efforts and explore ways GSA may support and amplify their work. GSA will also share some of the work group and stakeholder activities (presentations and programs) to help underserved populations.
