Our Center

The Buehler Center on Aging, Health, and Society is one of few centers on aging affiliated with a medical school. Our mission is to improve the quality of life and care for older adults, the terminally ill, and other vulnerable populations through education and research. Our research and educational initiatives focus on combining palliative care with geriatrics and gerontology in order to bring optimal quality of life to older adults at all stages of illness, as well as addressing the needs of family caregivers.
