Membership of the IGS

The Irish Gerontological Society (IGS) is the foremost multidisciplinary society in Ireland concerned with gerontology: the science and study of the ageing process. This includes the study of changes in older people’s physical and cognitive health, and the social changes people experience as they age.

Members of the IGS stem from the whole of Ireland, representing professions and disciplines involved in areas such as health and social care, economics, the social and built environments and technology

Traditionally, registration at our Annual and Scientific Meeting includes the membership fee for the society for 12 months. Given that we are not in a position to hold our annual meeting this year we are offering membership independently.
