The Office of Geriatrics and Interprofessional Aging Studies at The Ohio State University serves as a focus for aging-related activities throughout the University and is the only formally recognized unit devoted to aging on campus.
The Office strives to provide coordinated education, research, practice and service opportunities in geriatrics and gerontology while enhancing and supporting the initiatives of individual departments, schools and colleges to meet the demographic imperatives of our aging society.
Located in Graves Hall, 333 West 10th Avenue, on the OSU
campus, Office leadership stands ready to assist students in defining
their educational direction and creating their career in aging path, as
well as working with community partners and faculty across campus to
enhance teaching and research collaborations.
The overall mission of the Office of Geriatrics and Interprofessional Aging Studies at The
Ohio State University is to foster through teaching, research and
consultation the cost effective delivery of high quality health and
social services to meet the needs of society’s older citizens.
Mini-Retreat on Aging
The Mini-Retreat on Aging brought together faculty and students in aging from 8 different colleges and schools, and many different departments and initiatives within those colleges. We explored campus-wide resources that already support and/or advance aging research, teaching and service. We considered what aging could look like at OSU in the future. Finally, we focused on how to make these goals and ideas into reality by making a commitment to advance aging initiatives at OSU. View report.
