The 4th Annual Scientific Meeting of the Australian and New Zealand Society for Sarcopenia and Frailty Research will be held on the 22nd and 23rd November 2019 at the Hilton Hotel in Sydney. The theme for the meeting is Sarcopenia, Falls and Frailty: Everybody’s Business.
The aim of this meeting is to take a holistic approach and to bring together clinical, basic and translational researchers, clinicians, allied healthcare professionals and service providers in the disciplines of sarcopenia, falls, frailty, osteoporosis, exercise and nutrition, to provide cross-fertilisation of ideas and networking opportunities, with the aim to develop better approaches for identifying, preventing and treating these conditions for our older patients.
Speakers will include both local and international experts, and emerging researchers and participants from across the research and practice spectrum. The scientific program includes ample opportunities for delegates to submit abstracts for oral presentations, symposiums, young investigator awards and an interactive poster session. Travel awards are also available to students for the top ranked abstracts. The newly formed early career investigator committee will also be hosting an event to provide greater networking opportunities for our up-and-coming researchers, clinicians and allied health professionals.
This is a multi-disciplinary meeting and we invite scientists and clinicians from basic sciences, exercise physiology, physiotherapy, nutrition, medicine, nursing, epidemiology, health economics, and public health to participate. There will be plenty of time for networking with colleagues to share ideas and discuss future collaborations.
