Now Celebrating 30 Years!

The University of Kentucky College of Public Health is proud to provide this annual forum for professionals to share the most current information in geriatrics and gerontology from a multidisciplinary perspective. When the Summer Series on Aging began in 1983, it was the only conference of its kind targeting professionals in aging. Today we have over 350 attending annually and continue to pursue the highest of educational goals. During three days of educational sessions, lectures and workshops, participants choose from topics on clinical issues, policy, technology, management, wellness, housing, healthcare, and service. The Summer Series on Aging provides innovative and practical information for professionals in service provision, nursing, social work, home health, recreation, pharmacy, case management, nutrition, law, religion, medicine, state and regional aging planning, senior centers, physical and occupational therapy, education and other professions in the field.

Upon completion of the Summer Series on Aging, participants will have the knowledge to: apply new and updated practical information in geriatrics and gerontology to their own specific professional responsibilities; describe new and innovative programs and services in the field of aging that are functioning effectively throughout the country and select concepts and/or processes appropriate for replication in other community or professional settings; and outline current initiatives and emerging issues in the field of aging and identify a network of speakers, participants, and programs as available resources.
