The Institute on Aging is a university-wide collaborative effort that leverages the existing strengths and expertise of all the UTHealth schools, including the Schools of Medicine, Nursing, Dentistry, Public Health, Biomedical Informatics, and Biomedical Sciences.
Focusing on aging-related interdisciplinary care, education, research, and community outreach, the role of the Institute is to foster collaboration among the schools and centers of UTHealth Houston with the community.
Our goal is to help provide excellent comprehensive patient care and education for patients, families, professionals and caregivers.
The Houston Geriatric Education Center was founded in 2007 through a grant from HRSA (Health Resources and Services Administration). We offer educational resources and periodic programming.
Together we will be the leading institute promoting healthy and meaningful aging.
