INTRODUCTION

 

This program is designed to be beneficial for internists, family practitioners, geriatricians, geriatric psychiatrists, pharmacists, nurses, nursing home administrators, social workers and other health care professionals who provide care to older adults.

 

The field of Geroscience continues to gain momentum in the research community. Lifespan has enjoyed a significant increase over the last 150 years, but health span has not. Age is the greatest risk factor for nearly every major cause of mortality in developed nations. Despite this, most biomedical research focuses on individual disease processes without much consideration for the relationships between aging and disease.

 

Recent discoveries in the field of Geroscience, which aims to explain biological mechanisms of aging, have provided insights into molecular processes that underlie biological aging and, perhaps more importantly, potential interventions to delay aging and promote healthy longevity. The program will offer some of these advances, along with efforts to move Geroscience from the bench to the clinic.

 

♿ Participation by all individuals is encouraged. Advance notification of any special needs will help us provide better service. Please notify us of your needs at least two weeks in advance of the program by calling Nadine Popovich at (412) 321-5030.

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

 

At the end of this course, participants should be able to:

 

• Describe the emerging field of “Geroscience”
• Define the implications for understanding relationships between aging biology and chronic disease in promoting health span.
• Identify how common mechanisms governing aging might underlie the pathology associated with chronic diseases.

 

CME

 

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and the Pennsylvania Geriatricsi Society – Western Division.
