WHAT IF THERE WAS A CONDITION
THAT AFFECTED OVER 40 MILLION*
AMERICANS AND NO ONE NOTICED?
There is. It's called AGING.
And the diseases and disabilities it can bring—from Alzheimer's and arthritis to diabetes, depression and heart disease—are having a crippling effect on millions of Americans.
Yet funding for aging research, geriatric care, and educating the public remains drastically insufficient.
It's just old age, they say. What can you do?
At AFAR, we don't accept this. Never have. Never will. While aging is inevitable, disease and disability don't have to be. Our mission, quite simply, is to find new ways to help every American live healthier, longer.
That’s why we fund biomedical research on healthy aging and support efforts to improve geriatric care and promote the latest scientific findings.
We truly believe there are remarkable discoveries to be found. And when we do, we can help every American live healthier, longer. Won't you help us?
Let's make this the age of AGING BETTER.
