The Medical Center Board invites the URMC community to attend its annual program and hear how the University of Rochester Aging Institute extends our institution’s legacy of helping humanity “not only to add years to our life, but to add life to our years.” That was a phrase Dr. T. Franklin Williams, a URMC faculty member widely recognized as the founder of modern geriatric medicine, used to describe his work. Dr. Williams, who died in 2011, spent eight years as director of the National Institute on Aging. In Rochester he mentored dozens of geriatricians and gerontologists during a 40-year career of research, teaching, and clinical care focused on the health and well-being of older adults.
Built on that foundation, the UR Aging Institute, led by Geriatrics & Aging Chief Annette Medina-Walpole, M.D., connects the work of clinicians, educators, and investigators focused on one mission: to promote vitality in aging. Attend this engaging talk to learn how the institute leverages University strengths in three distinct areas: scientific discovery, clinical care and education, and community collaboration.
