AFAR was founded in 1981 to fund and nurture talented scientists and physicians, and to encourage them to pursue lifelong careers in research focused on aging processes and age-related diseases. Today, three decades later, AFAR has provided more than $150 million in support of researchers in aging and to encourage the training of new scientists and physicians in geriatric research and in the practice of geriatric medicine. The important work AFAR supports, leads to a better understanding of the aging process and to improvements in the health of all Americans as they age.
Just imagine what aging research will do for our futures! I am in full support of the foundation and would like to find out what can be done to better our aging process.
