Gerontology, derived from the Greek words "geron" (old man) and "logy" (study of), refers to the study of aging's psychological, social, and biological aspects. This medical specialty covers the physical, mental, and social changes that people undergo in the process of aging. It investigates the intersection of normal aging and age-related disease (geroscience). Moreover, gerontology encompasses the application of knowledge to policies and programs aimed at aged or aging people. While often associated or considered synonymous with geriatrics, gerontology is a different field. Gerontology studies the aging process itself while geriatrics studies the disease of the elderly population. Sub-topics under gerontology include biogerontology (the study of the biological processes of aging) and social gerontology (studying or working with older adults). This category lists various sites that provide information and updates on the field of gerontology. Included are reference sites, research, groups and organizations, journals and other publications, as well as well as information on education and practice.
