Mission

The mission of Massachusetts Gerontology Association is to convene researchers, practitioners, and public policy makers in Massachusetts to create dialogue on critical issues related to aging and to facilitate the transfer of knowledge from academic research to day-to-day practice.

What We Do

The Association (MGA) was founded in 1974 by a group of gerontologists headed by the late Professor Louis Lowy of Boston University. These charter members emphasized the need for an ongoing exchange of information and practice within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. MGA focuses on promoting dialogue between researchers and practitioners and has a special interest in relating gerontological knowledge to policy making.




The Massachusetts Gerontology Association has become a leading organization for professionals in the field of aging. Our membership includes individuals and organizations from a wide range of disciplines including social work, education, public health, nursing/medicine, housing/architecture and many others.
