Pace University Creates Institute for Healthy Aging

The Lienhard School of Nursing of Pace University has recently established the Institute for Healthy Aging (IHA) on its New York and Pleasantville campuses. The Institute will provide education and research geared toward individuals 40 years of age and older and to health care professionals servicing this population. Initial funding for the IHA was provided by grants from the Mary and Milton B. Rosenbach Foundation.

“Since so many adults are now between 40-65 the time is ripe for a call to action for a proactive and strategic approach to the challenges of the aging,” said Joanne Singleton, co-director of the IHA at Pace University. “Healthy aging is the participation in the biological, psychological, sociological, spiritual care-of-self over time. Through multidisciplinary education and research the IHA will provide educational activities and develop programs for individuals, families and communities to promote healthy aging.”

The Institute for Healthy Aging will host conferences at Pace University’s New York City campus. Specialists in nutrition, sports science, neurobiology and aging will be featured. A recent conference included Walter Willett, MD, chairman of the department of nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health and author of the best selling book, “Eat, Drink and Be Healthy.”
