Physicians attending the Annual Meeting of the AMA House of Delegates are invited to an educational program and luncheon titled, "The Aging Physician, Opportunities and Challenges," which will take place from noon to 1:30 p.m. Central time June 15 Hyatt Regency Chicago.

The session will cover the physiology of aging and its implications for physicians. It also will examine positive ways in which physician leaders might welcome new guidelines for addressing the special circumstances and needs of senior physicians.
