The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP) is requesting abstracts addressing the science of healthy aging for presentation at the 2015 Healthy Aging Summit, July 27-28, 2015 in Washington, DC.
Now is the time to examine the critical factors that contribute to healthy aging. Older Americans are a key part of our urban, rural and tribal communities as they have spent a lifetime contributing. Estimates of the U.S. population in 2010, revealed more than 40 million adults age 65 and older. By 2030, this figure is projected to increase to 72 million. Health care expenditures (both out-of-pocket costs and those covered by insurance) for Medicare beneficiaries over time are expected to rise for persons over 65 years of age. Encouraging healthy lifestyles, along with improving the delivery of preventive services, can help older Americans stay healthier longer and improve quality of life in later years.
Using a social determinants of health lens to focus on prevention in healthy aging. What are the upstream factors that contribute to living longer, healthier lives? This Summit seeks to highlight place-based interventions and strategies that optimize health and prevent entry into the health care system. A greater understanding of the social, environmental and emotional factors that influence health in the later years of life can improve quality of life and reduce health care costs.
The National Association for Rural Mental Health Annual Conference is the premier interdisciplinary event for rural families, community members, clinicians, researchers, administrators, and policy professional and provides great information and networking opportunities regarding all aspects of rural practice, research, and policy.

This year’s conference theme “Ahupua`a: From the Mountains to the Sea” is bringing together rural community stakeholders from practice (children and adult services, early intervention, prevention, health, juvenile justice, etc.) research sciences (prevention, intervention, treatment, integration, evaluation, etc. ) and policy (mental health, substance abuse, health, justice, law enforcement, prevention, etc.) to discuss the path ahead for rural communities in the face of the changing health/mental health environment.
The 9th European Congress on Tropical Medicine and International Health brings together some 2’000 of the most distinguished scientists and experts in the field of tropical medicine and international health. It is the premier European congress in this field.
Participants will address new solutions for the most neglected populations on the planet and especially how to apply the best science for global health challenges.
Throughout plenaries, seminars and six to eight parallel scientific sessions, the conference will reflect on global health challenges, neglected diseases, the millennium development goals and what comes after. The event will also offer a platform to reinforce and further promote public-private-partnerships and policy dialogue towards addressing global health challenges.
The congress will provide a forum for scientists, politicians, NGOs, and public and private health experts to exchange new ideas and to discuss solutions to the global health challenges of today and tomorrow.
This meeting will bring together suicide researchers studying topics ranging from neurobiology and genetics to prevention and intervention. All suicide researchers and those interested in learning about the most cutting edge evidence are invited to attend and take advantage of this excellent opportunity to network and interact. In addition to plenary sessions with preeminent suicide researchers and symposia, the meeting will include a mentoring program, poster sessions, and workshops addressing methodological issues particular to suicide research, such as assessment of suicidal behavior, strategies for research on low base rate outcomes, use of proxy measures, and maintaining the delicate balance between ethical and methodological concerns.
