UNC's Center for Aging and Health helps older adults live well longer.
The Center for Aging and Health
The UNC Center for Aging and Health, housed within the School of Medicine, advances innovative, high-quality geriatrics interprofessional education, research, and clinical care to improve the health and well-being of the aging population across North Carolina and the nation. We support the Division of Geriatric Medicine to provide person-centered, exceptional clinical care to older patients; connect families and caregivers with community resources; and train the next generation of Geriatricians.
But we don’t stop there. Improving care for older adults means training different types of providers – including dentists, pharmacists, cardiologists, and oncologists – in best practices of geriatric medicine that are grounded in research, informed by patient priorities, and guided by compassion.
Whether you’re a medical resident applying to our Fellowship programs, a Triangle resident looking to become a patient, or a clinician taking our courses, the Center for Aging and Health can connect you to the right resources for aging well.
