UNC's Center for Aging and Health helps older adults live well longer.
The Center for Aging and Health
The Center for Aging and Health supports the Division of Geriatric Medicine in its mission to provide the highest quality 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.
