University Center on Aging and Health

Enhancing the Health and Quality of Life in Older Adults, Their Family, and Their Kin

Since 1978, the University Center on Aging and Health (UCAH) has served as an interdisciplinary point at Case Western Reserve University for building and maintaining excellence in gerontological and geriatric research, education, and practice.

UCAH's mission is to foster collaboration among its community of scholars, learners, and practitioners in order to encourage and coordinate innovative interdisciplinary research, education, and service programs relevant to the health and well-being of older adults.

State-of-the-art knowledge about the aging process and its implications for individuals, families, communities, and societies is advanced and disseminated throughout the community.
