As we continue to live longer, healthier lives, it is important to continue to expand our understanding of how we age, and how we can age well. The Department of Geriatrics is taking on this exciting challenge through innovative research on issues at the heart of the needs of older adults. Taking advantage of interprofessional partnerships with experts on FSU's campus as well as community organizations, the Department of Geriatrics is creating a unique footprint in multiple arenas of the geriatric landscape.
