Canadian Geriatrics SocietyThe first objective of the Canadian Geriatrics Society is to promote excellence in the medical care of older Canadians. This Society also wishes to promote a high standard of research in the field of geriatrics/ gerontology and to improve the education provided to Canadian physicians on aging and its clinical challenges. To disseminate Canadian research and knowledge on the clinical care of older patients, an Annual Scientific Meeting is held in conjunction with the CGS Annual Business Meeting. “Geriatrics Today: Journal of the Canadian Geriatrics Society” is the official publication of the CGS.
