UAB Comprehensive Center for Healthy Aging

The purpose of the newsletter is to communicate information about activities and accomplishments of Comprehensive Center for Healthy Aging (CFA) faculty and enhance the visibility of the CFA locally and nationally. The focus of the newsletter has been on research activities, including newly funded grants, updates on ongoing research projects, and the Comprehensive Center for Healthy Aging Intramural Grant program. It also serves as a venue for promoting the Center’s educational programs such as the Clinical and Behavioral Training program in Gerontology and the Scientific Seminar Series, as well as the service programs including the Alzheimer Family Program and New Horizons.

The newsletter is published two times per year and distributed to over 3500 individuals and organizations with interest in aging and programs for older adults. These include national and regional funding agencies, service agencies, centers on aging, leaders in gerontology and geriatric medicine, legislators, and other government officials.
