Organizing Committee

The 2020 IPA Virtual Congress theme is “Mental health for people of Old Age in a rapidly changing world. This theme reflects the impact that the modern world can have on the mental health of people of old age. This has been demonstrated by the effects of social distancing during the Coronavirus restrictions on older people.

On behalf of IPA and Congress Organizing Committee Co-Chairs, Raimundo Mateos, Luiz Cortez Pinto and Lia Fernandes, we are excited to welcome you to the 2020 IPA Virtual International Congress.
