The Columbia Aging Center is currently home to IAGG -- The International Association for Gerontology & Geriatrics. IAGG's current president, John W. Rowe, MD, a Columbia Aging Center Faculty Member, assumed his four-year appointment at IAGG's 2017 World Congress in San Francisco.

The mission of the International Association of Gerontology and Geriatrics is to promote the highest levels of achievement in gerontological research and training worldwide, and to interact with other international, inter-governmental and non-governmental organizations in the promotion of gerontological interests globally and on behalf of its member associations. The Association pursues these activities with a view of enhancing the highest quality of life and well being of all people as they experience aging at individual and societal levels.
