Editor’s Note: In October 2000, the American College of Sports Medicine hosted the ACSM Specialty Conference: Physical Activity Programming for the Older Adult. The conference, which attracted an audience of nearly 200 participants from around the world, featured renowned faculty presenting cutting-edge scientific and educational forums, a Leadership Summit consisting of representatives from the top aging institutions and agencies, and a poster presentation session. The conference consensus statement will appear in Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise ® later this year.
