About Us

The American Geriatrics Society (AGS) is a nationwide, not-for-profit society of geriatrics healthcare professionals dedicated to improving the health, independence, and quality of life of older people. Our nearly 6,000 members include geriatricians, geriatric nurses, social workers, family practitioners, physician assistants, pharmacists, and internists.

We provide leadership to healthcare professionals, policymakers, and the public by implementing and advocating for programs in patient care, research, professional  and public education, and public policy.
