Supportive Services/Health Services
Center for Healthy Aging
A unique partnership with San Diego State University’s College of Health and Human Services provides seniors with critical health assessments and monitoring in an interdisciplinary “learning laboratory”. Students work closely with Serving Seniors staff and learn to understand the importance of providing an integrated system of care for older adults to achieve optimal health and well-being while helping train the next generation of geriatric professionals.
