Educate the Public
The Health in Aging Foundation brings the discoveries and expertise of the geriatrics field to the public by providing health information to older adults and their informal caregivers.
The Foundation’s flagship initiative is our website, HealthinAging.org. This comprehensive resource presents expert, up-to-date information about how to stay healthy and active as we age, as well as what to do if health problems arise in later life.
The site’s Aging & Health: A to Z section offers information on more than 60 health conditions common among older people, including symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, and lifestyle approaches. “Unique to Older Adults” sections provide additional information about complications that may occur with a given health problem, and what to do if you, or an older adult you care for, has these complications.
In addition to HealthinAging.org, we:
- Work with the media to increase public awareness of health and aging issues.
- Produce educational videos on topics such as Diabetes in Older Adults and Falls Prevention.
Create guides such as Preventing Medication Interactions and Five Things Physicians and Patients Should Question (part of the national Choosing Wisely® campaign).
