Welcome to the first
IAGG-ER International Digital Forum on Aging
“Vaccines and Nutrition:
two pillars of active and healthy aging”
online on July 1/2, 2021!

Dear colleagues and friends,

I am honoured to invite you to our upcoming IAGG-ER Digital Forum on Ageing to be held on July 1-2, 2021.

The scope of this international digital event is wide-ranging and ambitious, and it will develop under two main themes: Vaccines and Nutrition – two pillars of healthy ageing.
Together with the presidents of our Sections, the Executive Committee and Scientific Board, we prepared a programme that will advance from the traditional concepts in gerontology and geriatrics to the new ideas, theories and models that embrace the life of older adults under the clinical and social point of view.
Through live sessions, interactive contents and online activities we will guide you straight to the latest developments and innovations in the fields of epidemiology, sociology, biology, nutrition.
It was a challenge, indeed, but we moved forward and beyond the global situation and focused on the mission of our Society to “enhance the highest quality of life and well-being of all people as they experience ageing at individual and societal levels”.
Healthy ageing is our goal, a global goal! For this reason, the IAGG-ER Digital Forum will involve a world-wide community of faculty, speakers and participants who will jointly confront, link up and comprehensively explore aging-related issues.

Join the IAGG-ER Digital Forum on Ageing on July 1-2, 2021.

We look forward to welcome all of you!

Prof Mario Barbagallo
President of IAGG-ER

IAGG-ER is the European branch of IAGG, the International Association of Gerontology and Geriatrics.
Its mission is to promote the highest levels of achievement in gerontological research and training worldwide, and to interact with other international, inter-governmental and non-governmental organizations in the promotion of gerontological interests globally and on behalf of its member associations. The Association pursues these activities with a view of enhancing the highest quality of life and well being of all people as they experience ageing at individual and societal levels.

The socio-behavioral section of IAGG-ER brings together sociologists, psychologists, public health scientists, social policy, scholars in the humanities, social workers, anthropologists, and economists focusing on social, cultural and behavioral aspects of aging, old age and care for older people – as well as policy makers and practitioners working on these areas – usually attend the sessions that this section organizes as part of the IAGG-ER congresses.
