We support the expansion and sustainability of evidence-based health promotion and disease prevention programs in the community and online through collaboration with national, state, and community partners. Our goal is to help older adults live longer and healthier lives.
Are you ready to educate seniors on Sept. 23, the first day of fall? Use our tips and tools to plan an event in your community to help older adults understand their falls risk and how to stay safe.
Thanks to generous support from GSK, NCOA’s Falls Free® Initiative is holding a video contest! We’re looking for positive images of older adults engaged in a variety of falls prevention activities. The winners will receive Amazon gift cards, and their videos will be used in NCOA national media and falls prevention materials.
Chronic diseases continue to be the nation’s leading causes of death and disability. Chronic disease self-management education is a low-cost intervention that can improve the health and quality of life for adults with chronic health conditions and has potential for significant health care cost savings. See our updated fact sheet.
The Center for Healthy Aging’s website has a new look, as well as many new and updated resources! Join us for a guided tour of the website, highlighting best practice resources and other useful information for organizations offering chronic disease self-management education and falls prevention programs.Find out more »
