About

CHAI aims to promote health and wellbeing across the life-course with a specific focus on older adults locally and globally

Our Goals

Expand the health span by promoting equity and social justice where we work, live, and play.

Systematically dismantle discrimination with a focus on ageism, racism, sexism, and as it intersects with other forms of oppressing prejudice.
Maximize the promise of intergenerational cohesion and relationships
