And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years. ~ Abraham Lincoln
A main goal of the Healthy Aging Studies research team is the prevention and control of chronic diseases and conditions of aging through research aimed at promoting healthful lifestyles and health-enhancing environments.
Our research includes 3 main areas:
- applying state-of-the-art communication techniques in promoting healthful lifestyles among diverse groups of older adults
- exploring the potential impacts of the built environment on physical activity and other health-enhancing behaviors
- exploring the best methods for tailoring and disseminating evidence-based health promotion interventions throughout the U.S. and internationally
