The State Society on Aging (SSA) of New York is an interdisciplinary membership society. SSA brings together individuals and groups from health, government, educational and community settings committed to improving the quality of life for older New Yorkers through education, research, service, and advocacy.
The State Society on Aging of New York was founded in 1972 as the New York State Association of Gerontological Educators (NY SAGE). Since its formation it has provided leadership in the field of aging, especially in promoting gerontology and geriatrics education. In 1989, the organization officially changed its name to The State Society on Aging of New York, Inc., recognizing its changing membership and its role as the foremost interdisciplinary organization in the state. While education remains a primary concern, SSA welcomes the contributions of all those interested in any aspect of aging.
