PHI at ‘On Aging’ 2022 Conference in New Orleans

April 4, 2022

The ‘On Aging’ conference, hosted by the American Society on Aging, remains the largest multidisciplinary conference on aging in the country.

Every year, it gathers thousands of people working in support of healthy aging to learn about the latest trends and issues affecting older adults and their caregivers. The conference will be held in person for the first time since 2019—an important and encouraging milestone.

PHI will continue to play a significant role at this year’s conference, which will take place in New Orleans, Louisiana. We will be hosting and participating in several workshops focused on direct care workers, equity in long-term care, research needs, and much more. We will also host a booth in the exhibit hall where attendees can grab our latest publications and learn more about our work.

Below is our complete list of workshops at the On Aging conference.
