The mission of the Institute for Healthy Aging (IHA) is to engage with the community in ways that improve quality of life for older adults, our faculty, staff, students, and future generations. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, we document the resilience, strength and wisdom of our older generation for our younger generations.

The IHA works with faculty and students in the departments of Human Services and Gerontology to prepare them to meet with participants on the phone or through the internet. Our faculty and students were eager to meet their community partners and to hear their stories, anecdotes, and insights about surviving difficult times.
