About Us

Aging affects everybody! The American Geriatrics Society (AGS) Student Chapter at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) aims to spread awareness of how aging impacts healthcare and how we, as healthcare professionals, can best prepare for working with an aging population. With seminars, skills workshops, and community service opportunities, we are committed to providing educational, engaging, and inspirational events which spotlight important issues related to aging. As an institution, we have several graduate and interdisciplinary programs with students focused on serving older adults. Through the AGS chapter, we plan to support and learn from each other on best practices for serving older adults in our respective fields. We aim to further understand the intersections of our various roles in healthcare and to spark conversations about issues that affect all of us, such as ageism.
