Sharing our activities in research, education & clinical innovation to advance healthy aging.
The Center seeks to enhance the quality of life for people as they age through research, training of health professionals and facilitation of evidence-based clinical service. This is accomplished through theory-driven research with practical health care and quality of life implications. The Center seeks to develop models for translation of research into clinical practice, as well as explore opportunities for academic-community partnerships. We encourage and facilitate interdisciplinary approaches to problems of public health importance covering the topics of physical frailty, dementia care, end of life comfort care, healthy aging, aging at home in place and quality of life issues.
