The American Geriatrics Society (AGS) expressed deep disappointment with proposed cuts that could curtail training for the health professionals we all will need as we age, as well as impede a range of services for older adults--all outlined by President Trump in his budget plan for 2019.
With the rapid development of wind energy technology in the past 15 years comes a new conundrum: how to dispose of the non-biodegradable blades in current wind turbines in a sustainable way. The City College of New York and its international partners are on it.
Artificial intelligence is helping people make better decisions about managing water resources. Scientists are taking the best tools of advanced computing to help make decisions about complex and pressing problems in managing Earth's resources, including water. A science panel on AI and water management headed by Suzanne Pierce of the Texas Advanced Computing Center meets in Austin, Texas on February 17th at the 2018 meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
With support from The John A. Hartford Foundation, the American Geriatrics Society (AGS) today launched ortho.agscocare.org, a site providing resources and tools for hospitals interested in implementing the AGS CoCare: Ortho model. By helping health systems integrate geriatric and orthopedic expertise as soon as possible, AGS CoCare: Ortho seeks to improve care and lower health costs for the 260,000 older adults hospitalized annually with hip fractures.
