NACDD and Healthy Aging
Over the past decade, NACDD has been involved in a variety of activities and initiatives related to healthy aging. These activities have been focused on increasing the capacity of state and territorial health departments to effectively promote healthy aging and improve quality of life for older adults and their caregivers. NACDD activities have also served to link state and territorial health departments and other partners who share a common interest in the promotion of healthy aging.
Over the past several years, NACDD has provided funding through a Cooperative Agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to support state and territorial health departments to promote healthy aging, build partnerships with Prevention Research Centers, and engage in strategic activities to address Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. Please visit the Resources/Tools tab on this webpage to view select reports and resources based on those funded projects.
Although NACDD is not currently funded to engage in specific activities related to healthy aging, we invite you to explore the various resources and reports related to healthy aging that are provided on this site.
