Some members of the iLife team spent a week at the Gerontological Society of America (GSA)'s 66th annual meeting in New Orleans in November 2013. This meeting brings together researchers, clinicians and professionals with an interest in the aging process, from fields as diverse as psychology, nursing, social work, sociology, biology and geography. Over five days, attendees' days are filled with lectures, talks, symposiums and poster sessions. It's a great way to find out about the latest news and research on all aspects of older adulthood, and meet potential collaborators and colleagues. Philippe Rast delivered two well-attended talks on retest effects (the learning that occurs with repeated testing) and change-point models (trying to find the age at which real change begins to occur). Scott Hofer was the discussant at these sessions. Amanda Kelly presented the poster below, which is based on our recent work with patients at a local family medicine clinic, "Short-Term Changes in Self-Reported Health and Associations with Daily Experience". It is also attached here as a PDF to be easier to read.
