RAND is pleased to announce the 27th annual RAND Summer Institute (RSI) on the Demography, Economics, Psychology, and Epidemiology of Aging. RSI addresses critical issues facing our aging population, and offers attendees the opportunity to connect with expert researchers in a variety of disciplines to discuss the interrelationship of health, economic, status, and public policy in the aging field.

The 2020 conference will be held July 8–10, just after the Mini-Medical School for Social Scientists on July 6–7. The conference aims to serve as a vehicle to provide additional training to researchers new to the field of aging, and is sponsored by the National Institute on Aging and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Annual RAND Summer Institute will be held virtually.
