May 2015:
Prominent aging researchers met in Mexico City in late May 2015 for a workshop titled "Strengthening the Scientific Foundation for Policymaking to Meet the Challenges of Aging in Latin America and the Caribbean." Scientific research was presented on aging in Latin America and the Caribbean and the similarities and differences around the world. The workshop highlighted the main areas where experts believe research is insufficient and where new research is required. Sponsors of the workshop were The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine and The National Academy of Medicine of Mexico.
