The Art & Science of Aging Conference is held annually in Grand Rapids Michigan on the 4th Friday in February.  The purpose of the conference is to educate and inspire those who are aging and those who work with them to reimagine older people as resources, as repositories of experience, wisdom, creativity, and curiosity - living longer lives and seeking to do so healthier in spirit, body, and mind, while staying engaged in society and their own circles of family, friends, neighbors and their communities.
We have a diverse audience of professionals working in aging-related services and programs, and community members who are interested in the educational and social opportunities offered by the conference.
