From 2012 to 2013, the College observed a year-long commemoration of its Centennial, "100 Years of Inspiring Quality."

GeripalGeriPal (Geriatrics and Palliative care) is a forum for discourse, recent news and research, and free thinking commentary. Our objectives are: 1) to create an online community of interdisciplinary providers interested in geriatrics or palliative care; 2) to provide an open forum for the exchange of ideas and disruptive commentary that changes clinical practice and health care policy; and 3) to change the world. GeriPal was founded by Eric Widera and Alex Smith.
