The Yale Geriatrics Department participates in collaborative aging research with various partners in the Connecticut Area.

FallPrevention

Connecticut Collaboration for Fall Prevention »

The objective of the Collaboration is to implement, within the greater Hartford area, a multifaceted, multidisciplinary fall prevention program that reaches older adults via the existing health care system and community organizations. The fall prevention interventions are based on a randomized clinical trial conducted at Yale which found that a multifactorial intervention strategy resulted in a 36% reduction in the fall rate among community living older adults.

AFAR

Hartford Foundation Center for Excellence in Aging »

The overarching objective of the Yale Hartford Center of Excellence (CoE) is to increase the quantity and quality of faculty who are able to teach, conduct research, and provide leadership for aging and geriatric issues. To accomplish this objective, the aim of the Yale/Hartford COE in Aging is to provide research training, support, and mentorship to geriatrically-trained fellows and junior faculty. The Yale CoE supports both research and educational scholars. While our priority is developing geriatrically-trained faculty, we also support highly qualified physician investigators conducting age-related research in the medical subspecialties.
