The 2012 International Conference on Aging in the Americas is the fifth installment of a conference series established in 2001. The USC Edward R. Roybal Institute on Aging in partnership with the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs at The University of Texas at Austin, the Population Research Center at The University of Texas at Austin, and The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston (UTMB) will host the first conference in the series to be held outside of Texas in Los Angeles, California on the campus of USC.
The conference is being funded in part by a sub-award from the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs at The University of Texas at Austin, which received a (R13) Scientific Meeting Grant from the National Institute on Aging (NIA).

The Conference Series on Aging in the Americas has several goals, one of which is to promote interdisciplinary collaboration by gathering a broad array of researchers in the fields of health, health care policy, and behavioral and social aspects of aging into a single forum to exchange ideas and foster collaborative efforts aimed at addressing key issues affecting the health of aged Latinos. Past conferences examined the social and economic causes and consequences of health problems among older Mexican-origin individuals in the United States and in Mexico.
Scholars conducting research on Latino populations in the United States, Mexico, Latin America and the Caribbean are expected to participate in this important conference which will be held outside of Texas for the first time. The conference will provide the opportunity for scholars involved in the study of Latino health and aging to develop a set of goals to advance research for this large and growing segment of the U.S. population.
