About the Optimal Aging Conference

This multi-day conference is the premier aging conference that unites healthcare and social service professionals, industry members, academics, older adults, and caregivers who view aging as an opportunity. Hear from leaders in the aging field, physicians, researchers, entrepreneurs, holistic practitioners, and many more, as they share stories and ideas on how to inspire, innovate, impact, investigate, and integrate the aging experience. With outstanding keynote speakers, continuing education and networking opportunities, a resource-rich exhibit hall, and over 30 presentations, this conference is not to be missed.

This year’s theme, Aging and Health Equity, recognizes that health disparities exist among different populations—often due to social, economic, and environmental factors—and reflects on the importance of addressing these disparities to ensure everyone has the opportunity to achieve optimal health as they age.
