Member Type: Patient Advocacy Groups
The private, not-for-profit Alliance for Aging Research is the nation's leading citizen advocacy organization for improving the health and independence of Americans as they age. The Alliance was founded in 1986 to promote medical and behavioral research into the aging process. Since then, and as the explosion of the Senior Boom approaches, the Alliance has become the voice for Baby Boomer health by developing, implementing and advocating programs in research, professional and consumer health education and public policy.
The Alliance for Aging Research believes that science can help people live longer, more productive lives. We feel that greater access to the latest scientific information will empower people to take control of their own health, while educating them on the importance and need for further medical advances. From policy issues to consumer health programs, the Alliance works to generate knowledge and action on age-related issues.
