I've had the opportunity to present at the Aging in America conference for the last two years. Both times have been excellent experiences. The participants are experienced professionals who are engaged and engaging. Presenting at Aging in America allows me to reconnect with and learn from colleagues who are knowledgeable, experienced and caring individuals. It is one of the professional highlights of my year!

Presenting at Aging in America is an opportunity to collaborate with friends and colleagues. There is an excitement that comes from engaging participants in a topic of mutual interest. I learn from my fellow presenters as well as participants. Presenting is one way of becoming fully engaged in the conference. It is also a way of creating lifelong connections with aging professionals throughout the country.
