Health and Aging

Health

A driving theme of the work conducted at the Columbia Aging Center is health and understanding the conditions that promote normal versus pathological aging.  Specifically, how do we maintain and extend both healthspan and cognitive functioning in the face of age-related declines. Our other core themes, work and culture, are indissociable from the domain of health given how the significant effects of behavior, attitudes, and healthy environments can have on our well-being.
