CCGG 2022 Fall Showcase Call for Abstracts

Fall Showcase Overview

The California Council on Gerontology and Geriatrics (CCGG) will be hosting a Fall Showcase that gives an opportunity for students, faculty, and the greater community to share their work and research with the larger CCGG community. The spring and fall showcases provide a wonderful forum to connect and learn about the work that our colleagues are doing. It is also great for presenters to be able to share their information with a smaller, highly engaged audience. 

The Fall Showcase will be held on December 1, 2022 from 9:00-11:00am and will be held via Zoom video conferencing.  Please mark your calendar to join us even if you are not interested in presenting your research/work.

Students, faculty members, service providers in aging, and all others working in gerontology and geriatrics throughout the state of California are invited to apply. If you are interested in submitting a proposal for the Spring Showcase, please see the “Presenter Information” below. Attendees will be voting on presentation award(s) for the “Best in Show” with an award for the winner!
