The Center for Health and Aging Innovation (CHAI) aims to promote health and wellbeing across the life-span for everyone. As one of the leading institutions on productive aging, equity, and social policy, our research lays the foundation to help inform policies and programs that optimize health, economic security, and strong social bonds in a diversifying society.
We accomplish this through
NYU Silver School of Social Work offers a range of educational courses on aging and health from the bachelor’s letter to PhD and DSW and with continuing education courses.
We have a large network spanning local to global partners who test and innovate new programs and policies to promote healthy and productive aging. Many are leading social work practitioners at not-for-profit and for-profit organizations, as well as government entities.
