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 that educates, communicates, and continues to bring together its membership for the common goal of servicing the area’s aging communities. If you're not already a member, you can JOIN HERE.
The HPGS Board wishes that 2022 will find us visiting in person for a quarterly General Membership Meeting or fundraising event. Members are kept abreast with a monthly newsletter and asked to become active by attending meetings or offering articles for the newsletter.
