Healthy Aging

The Healthy Aging Summit (hosted in September 2018) aimed to develop a roadmap and accelerate action to promote healthy aging of older adults in Oregon. The summit brought together representatives from health systems, community organizations, and the public to discuss healthy aging in Oregon. The valuable and collaborative work started at the summit continues today.

Drs. Guise and Savitz have been asked by the National Academy of Medicine to present on healthy aging multiple times. Products will be posted here!
