The UofL Institute for Sustainable Health & Optimal Aging provides exposure to the latest innovations, resource, and interventions relating to aging. We invite you to explore the how the Institute can help you and/or those you care for to age optimally.
The Institute manages a participant registry of older adults and families of older adults. This registry consists of individuals who have volunteered to participate in research and product testing conducted in the field of aging studies.
The registry allows the community to become actively involved with studies and innovations that can improve the health and well-being of older adults and their families. As well, the registry enables such studies and innovations to more quickly reach the populations they are intended to help.
