Assess to success
The growing enthusiasm for health care of older people is exemplified in the growing number of high quality poster submissions to the British Geriatrics Society's autumn scientific meeting. We have had a record 155 posters accepted this year. In order to be accepted posters have had to clear a very robust peer-review process, so we can be sure that the quality is high and that the poster round will be one of the highlights of an already very interesting and exciting meeting.
An important part of the poster round is a second-stage peer review where candidates are asked to defend their poster before experts in health care of older people. To make this run smoothly, we need as many poster assessors as possible.
Can you help? In addition to an enjoyable morning and the opportunity to participate actively in the meeting, all assessors will get breakfast, lunch and a chance to engage with new and established researchers. It will enhance your experience of an already interesting and action-packed meeting.

You won’t regret it I promise!
