AAGP highlights include Annual Meeting and Journal

from By Susan K. Schultz, MD, AAGP president

On the heels of the terrific “Empower Aging” Annual Meeting, I’d like to thank the staff and membership for all the inspiring and thought-provoking sessions in Orlando. The range of topics nicely reflected the breadth of scientific and clinical expertise that makes our field such a unique specialty. It was wonderful to hear the enthusiastic comments among attendees who plan to join us in New Orleans!

The chance to get together at the Annual Meeting with our peers and recharge our enthusiasm for the field is the highlight of membership for most of us! I am hopeful that each of you will take to heart how important it is for the AAGP to reach out and engage more of our colleagues in our mission and our meeting.

In addition to the Annual Meeting, the other terrific benefit to our members is the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry. We have reaped the rewards of Dilip Jeste’s leadership enormously over the past 14 years, which has elevated the journal to a premier status and provided an exemplary outlet to publish our science. Dilip will finish his successful tenure at the end of 2015, and we are in the process of identifying our next Editor-in-Chief to take over this role.
