Healthy Aging Clinical Care & Services

At OU Health, you and your loved ones and caregivers can take advantage of the coordinated, multifaceted approach to the field of research on aging – known as geroscience – taking place at Oklahoma Center for Geroscience and Healthy Brain Aging in Oklahoma City.

Research-Based Care for Healthy Aging

Geroscience focuses on understanding the process of aging and how aging itself acts as a major factor that contributes to health conditions including cancer, heart disease and diabetes, as well as brain- and nerve-related (neurodegenerative) diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis and others.

The field of geroscience also explores possible ways to slow the aging process, which would produce dramatic effects on most age-related diseases. This research translates into better healthcare and medical treatment for you and your loved ones, for all Oklahomans and for all residents throughout the region.
