Translating Research Into Practice
It is estimated that by the year 2020, 16 percent of the U.S. population will be age 65 or older. With the aging of America comes a greater need for information on how people can live healthier lives. Biomedical and clinical research has made great progress in identifying ways to prevent and treat common conditions associated with aging, thereby improving the health of those who suffer with age-associated chronic illness.
