About Us

Geriatrics is the health care of older adults. The Health in Aging Foundation is a national non-profit organization established in 1999 by the American Geriatrics Society, to bring the knowledge and expertise of geriatrics healthcare professionals to the public. We accomplish this by:

  • Providing expert, reliable health information to older adults and their informal caregivers.
  • Advocating on behalf of programs and policies that help older people lead healthy, active lives.
  • Supporting research on the diseases and disorders of older adults.

We are committed to ensuring that the public is empowered to advocate for high quality care for themselves or their loved ones, by providing them with trustworthy information and resources.
