The Center for Health and Aging Innovation (CHAI) at the NYU Silver School of Social Work looks to harness the power of intergenerational connection to increase the overall wellness of all generations. Our research, education, and community partnerships aim to promote equity among diverse populations.
With Intergenerational Home Sharing, CHAI fosters immediate intergenerational connection in the pairing of older and younger generations together to share living space.

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.
