Aging Connections is offered by the Office of Geriatrics and Interprofessional Aging Studies as a virtual “hub” for those at The Ohio State University, and the wider community, to learn about a broad array of aging opportunities and how you might become involved within your area of interest.  The interdisciplinary nature of aging education, research, and care emphasizes the importance of the connections between faculty, clinicians, students, and others interested in aging initiatives across campus.
