Health Compass is a joint project of two non-profit organizations dedicated to improving the health and independence of older adults:
AFAR supports biomedical research on aging and promotes public awareness about the importance of aging research.
MIAH educates the public and health professionals about health care for older adults and encourages research on health in the aging field.
Health Compass is developed, reviewed, and updated by a team of writers and experts in older adult health care and research on aging.
