The Center for Healthy Aging and the Longevity study-Learning from our Elders, the first longevity study in Arizona to explore the multiple factors contributing to healthy aging to enhance the quality of life for older adults. The Longevity Study:Learning from our Elders, a non-invasive observational study which began in 2006.
There are over 1300 participants with over 600 active participants, more than half over the age of 80. As more people live to advanced old age it is critical to gain a greater understanding of their health status and functional abilities during their life in relation to aging and cognition as a whole. Knowledge gained from this study will have a great impact on our understanding of the continual aging spectrum.
