We are liaisons between our many partners in the academic, research, clinical, and health insurance sectors of the University of Pittsburgh and UPMC. The expertise of our leaders — spanning education, research, social services, and direct patient care — ensures that we have a unique perspective in our efforts to build awareness of and support for the needs of older adults, regionally and nationally.
