UNC's Center for Aging and Health helps older adults live well longer.
At the Center for Aging and Health
We provide the highest quality of 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.
Notes for the Record: Dr. Ben Blomberg
“Providing thoughtful medical care for older adults can rarely be achieved in the standard 15-minute primary care office visit. The Geriatric Specialty Clinic excels in giving our patients the time they need. As a practice, we prioritize quality over quantity when it comes to caring for our patients. And as a geriatrician, time spent listening to my patients and their families helps me create a treatment plan that truly aligns with their goals of care.”
