From the Director / Anne B. Newman, MD, MPH

During the current pandemic of COVID-19, we are working hard to sustain our research while ensuring the safety of our participants and our staff. The value of research on aging is now more apparent than ever as we have seen the devastating effects of this novel corona virus on older adults, especially on people who are frail, people of color and people with chronic conditions. We have renewed our commitment to address barriers to progress in improving public health and achieving healthy aging for all.

  • Successful implementation of a weight management program for older adults by Community Health Workers at 26+ community sites
  • Training of over 60 pre- and post-doctoral students in the Epidemiology of Aging training program
  • Conduct of over 25 large observational studies and clinical trials focusing on the correlates of disease and health in older adults
  • Establish partnerships with local and county health departments, community stakeholders and other University of Pittsburgh schools/department to promote health aging through research, training and community outreach
