British Society of Gerontology
The British Society of Gerontology aims to promote the understanding of human ageing and later life through research and communication. It seeks to foster the application of this knowledge to the improvement of the quality of life in old age.
BSG's main activities are concerned with promoting the exchange of ideas and information. An important element is the programme of meetings, which as well as providing venues for informal discussion and formal presentations, create opportunities for members to publish and disseminate their work. The Society is also increasing its activity in the promotion of research.
