MGA Events



The Massachusetts Gerontology Association sponsors two conference events each year, the Annual Spring Conference and Fall Policy Forum. All those in attendance at our conferences are presented with valuable information as well as the opportunity to network with peers in aging and aging related fields.





The MGA Annual Spring Conference, Reframing Aging: Applying Communications  
Research to Advocacy Challenges will be held at Lasell College. We look forward to your participation at this valuable and informative event.


Lasell College
deWitt Auditorium
80 Maple Street
Newton, MA 02466

Friday, May 4, 9:00am-1:00pm


Join Mackenzie Price, PhD, to hear about findings from the FrameWorks Institute's Reframing Aging Project and how to use reframing as a strategic approach to changing the public conversation about aging issues. Participants will explore reframing as an advocacy tool and learn strategies for applying FrameWork's recommendations to their own communications practice. 

The Reframing Aging Project was launched by a national collaboration of leaders of aging organizations (AARP, the American Federation for Aging Research, the American Geriatrics Society, the American Society on Aging, the Gerontological Society of America, Grantmakers in Aging, the National Council on Aging, and the National Hispanic Council on Aging) to address the pitfalls of current messaging approaches and promote more effective communications about aging. 


Stay for a Town Hall meeting, and lunch, to strategize with MGA about how it can better serve your aging initiatives in Massachusetts.
