The American Geriatrics Society (AGS) is a professional non-profit medical society dedicated to improving the health and well being of older persons. The objectives of AGS are to develop, support, and promote the clinical practice of geriatrics and support practitioners providing such care; to increase the number of physicians knowledgeable about geriatrics and committed to the clinical care of elderly individuals; and to engage in a vigorous public policy effort that will result in improved health care for older people. Established in 1942, AGS has over 6,000 members with over 20 chapters. The organization develops position statements and clinical guidelines to bring important issues in geriatric education, research, clinical practice, and public policy to the attention of those working in the field, including policy makers, legislators, people in the health care industry, clinicians, and others. AGS publishes the "Journal of the American Geriatrics Society" and the "AGS Newsletter."
