The Florida Geriatrics Society was founded in 1989 and is the Florida Affiliate of the American Geriatrics Society, the leading geriatric professional organization in the world.  FGS membership consists of healthcare professionals who are skilled and passionate about caring for the elderly.  Historically, about 85% of FGS members are physicians, with the remainder mostly nurse practitioners, pharmacists, dieticians and a variety of other professions.  The FGS mission is to promote and maintain high standards of health care for the elderly, to assist with professional education, to foster professional and public awareness of issues that affect patients, to advocate for quality geriatric healthcare and to encourage and promote research.  With the aging of the “baby boomer” generation, the maturation of the specialty of geriatrics and the inclusion of mandatory geriatrics clerkships at many medical schools, we anticipate steady growth over the coming years.

 

FGS membership welcomes the opportunity to partner and to work with commercial entities who share our vision of quality care for the elderly.  We offer both corporate and meeting exhibitors.
