International Association of Gerontology and Geriatrics

The meeting of the International Association of Gerontology and Geriatrics (IAGG), held in Seoul, South Korea, June 23-27, 2013, was an outstanding success. The UH MBT SSW was well-represented. Faculty who had presentations accepted and presented included Drs. Colette Browne, Noreen Mokuau, Kathryn Braun, Lana Ka`opua, and Bum Jung Kim. Drs. Browne and Kim attended numerous meetings to discuss aging policy issues including a meeting and lunch with the Mayor of Seoul Metropolitan City, and meetings with the Chairman of Korea's National Assembly and Congressmen of Committee of Health and Welfare. We also made time for a tour of a senior welfare center and visits to other universities and their faculty, including Ewha Woman's University, Hanyang University, Sung-Shin University, and Seoul National University, which provided opportunities for discussions on research and education collaborations on aging issues in the future.
