CASHA: Center for Applied Science in Health and Aging
Engaging in rigorous applied research to promote health, vitality, and human potential in the aging community through innovative education, research, partnerships, and service.
Center for Applied Science in Health and Aging
The Center for Applied Science in Health and Aging (CASHA) will integrate disciplinary perspectives in physical activity, health, human development, and cognitive psychology to optimize human potential. Diverse inter- and intra-disciplinary approaches are essential to applied research because they allow scholars and practitioners to expand their thinking and enrich the co-creation process. In addition, we seek to develop the knowledge, skills, and dispositions of emerging scholars and practitioners by providing experiential and developmental learning opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students. Our team strives to identify, develop, and mobilize social and health innovations in applied research by enhancing well-being, performance, and functioning in the aging community.
To achieve these goals, our team will:
- Engage in rigorous research to promote health, vitality, and human potential in the aging community
- Disseminate findings to inform research, policy, practice, and program development
- Collaborate with community organizations and university partners to identify and address needs in the aging community
- Identify and secure funding through grants, contracts, partnerships, and commercialization
