Hawaii Pacific Gerontological Society

Welcome to HPGS!


Organized in 1979, the Hawaii Pacific Gerontological Society (HPGS) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life of Hawaii's older adults. We promote the understanding of the aging process, supportive services, and legislation that help people age with dignity and grace. It is the largest voluntary, multidisciplinary group in the State committed to dialogue and discussion, networking and information sharing on issues and policies affecting older adults in this geographical area.


There are more than 400 gerontology educators, medical and social service practitioners, caregivers, health care providers, assisted living facilities, individuals, agency personnel, and organizations from all sectors of the community who make up our membership.


HPGS has an open enrollment year around for those who would be interested in opportunities to be a part of an association who educates, communicates, and continues to bring together its membership for the common goal of servicing the area’s aging communities.
