International Journal Club

The new IPA international Journal Club (JC) offers a virtual approach to the time honored tradition of medical Journal Clubs. The JC will highlight top research in the field, providing a platform for researchers around the world to discuss their work with a community interested in advancing "Better Mental Health for Older People."
This will be an amazing opportunity for physicians, faculty, residents, fellows, students, and all health care practitioners to meet, interact, learn together, and network with global leaders and colleagues in the field.
