Gerontology and Health Care Research

The Center’s mission is to promote and improve health, health care and health-related quality of life of older and middle-aged persons with chronic disease by conducting research in health services and gerontology. We also train and launch the careers of the next generation of scientists working in our and related fields. Additionally, we recruit to and involve in our research undergraduates and MPH, medical and PhD students through RA-ships and thesis mentoring.
