Virginia Geriatric Conference
The Virginia Geriatric Conference (VGC) is held annually and is jointly sponsored by the VCU/Reynolds Partnership in Geriatric Education, the Virginia Geriatric Society, the Virginia Geriatric Education Center, and McGuire Veterans Affairs Medical Center. The VGC is designed to provide participants with advanced information concerning the treatment of geriatric patients.
