The Gerontological Society of America (GSA) hosts Careers in Aging Week every year internationally to bring greater awareness and visibility to the diverse and wide-ranging career opportunities in the field of aging.

People are living longer and populations are aging worldwide. The demand for professionals with expertise in aging is growing rapidly. Careers in Aging Week (CIAW) is observed by businesses, clinics, coalitions, organizations, universities, colleges and other parties across the world.

Join the Sanford Center for Aging and the Gerontology Academic Program in April 2021 for UNR's Careers in Aging Week, four days of educational and networking events on the UNR campus. All events are free and open to the university community. Refer back to this page later for all the details.
