The Journal of the American Geriatrics Society ranks first for impact among 15 journals in the geriatrics and gerontology category (Science Citation Index, 1995). Many physicians seek a better understanding of the unique problems of their elderly patients. Yet, despite an increasing demand for more information on the diseases of aging, there is actually a dearth of articles on this subject in most general medical journals. That is why specialists from many disciplines rely on this distinguished publication. In each monthly issue, readers find expert answers to their questions on aging and disease, practical solutions to common health problems, and updates on today's most compelling topics.
