2022 Spring Showcase

The California Council on Gerontology and Geriatrics (CCGG) will be hosting a Spring 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.  

May 5, 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, geriatrics, and older adult programs 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!

CCGG will be seeking abstracts for short virtual presentations on recent research. You will have 10 minutes for the presentation and 5 minutes for Q&A.

2022 SPRING SHOWCASE

The California Council on Gerontology and Geriatrics (CCGG) will be hosting a Spring Showcase for students, faculty, and the greater community to share their work and research. Due to the pandemic, we had our first showcase in the fall in lieu of the annual conference. While we look forward to one day being able to meet in a large group in-person, 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 2022 Spring Showcase is on May 5, 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. Our 2020-2021 Fall and Spring Showcases were a big hit, and we’re looking forward to the next one!
