proud to announce the NSHAP Early Results Conference, an NIA
funded, competitive workshop to present findings on integrated
health and aging research using the first wave of the NSHAP data.

health, multi-disciplinary approach and scientific validity.
Researchers with accepted proposals will be invited to present
their results at the conference. Travel and expenses will be
reimbursed for presenters.
