Why Join?

Membership is open to individuals or institutions that want to network with other individuals and institutions interested in the health and well being of older West Virginians and receive timely information and resources on current trends and activities in geriatrics both in West Virginia and nationwide.  The WVGS, in cooperation with sponsors and partners,  delivers an Annual Scientific Assembly each year providing up to date training for health professionals and stakeholders interested in improving the care and services for older adults in our state.  New in 2017, only members receive the training materials presented at the Annual Scientific Assemblies. WVGS provides you a link to access materials for the Scientific Assembly.
