The Indiana Geriatrics Society (IGS) was incorporated in 2007 with the goal of providing opportunities for members to network, learn, problem solve and provide optimum geriatric care for our Hoosier older adults. IGS encourages our members to collaborate with the American Geriatric Society on policy issues affecting the care of older adults and to explore opportunities to build community relationships through shared interests and education.

American Geriatrics Society (AGS) Recognizes IGS
The Indiana Geriatrics Society (IGS) received the Council of State Affiliate Representatives (COSAR) Public Policy Grassroots Program Award for their work as a grassroots advocate for Indiana members and for past participation in AGS public policy initiatives. The award also recognized the potential for IGS to further AGS' legislative objectives with federal policy makers, willingness to travel to Washington, DC in order to meet with elected officials, and a commitment to maintain contact with members of congressional delegations and staff after hill visits are completed.
