Geriatrics Research

Through the federal appropriations process, the AGS advocates on behalf of institutions that stand at the forefront of the nation’s research and training efforts related to older adult well-being.

Our Position

To ensure that older Americans can continue to make meaningful contributions to our communities, we need more research and research scientists focused on healthy aging; the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of age-related health concerns; and the cost-effectiveness of various approaches to care. We also must work to ensure that older adults are adequately represented in research trials.
