Sponsor the live webcast of the 2016 International Conference on
Aging in the Americas
Contextualizing Health and Aging on Both Sides of the U.S./Mexico Border
The University of Texas at San Antonio College of Public Policy (COPP) will host the 10th Annual
International Conference on Aging in the Americas (ICAA) September 14-16 in San Antonio. Due to
the wide appeal of this conference and geographic limitations of interested participants, COPP
would like to provide a live webcast and archived videos of the conference sessions so the entire
community can benefit from this important event by attending online. However, COPP only has
enough funds to cover the production costs of half of the conference sessions. NOWCastSA is seeking
sponsors to commit to funding this production so the entire conference can be webcast live on
YouTube and replayed later.
