Our Mission

We are focused on promoting knowledge transfer from basic science and clinical trials to multigenerational practice, services, education, and policy. By translating evidence-based results into practice and policy settings, we disseminate lessons learned to ensure that programming and training strengthen communities and are culturally relevant. We partner with community members, scholars, students, service providers, and policymakers to ensure our work has real and measurable impact. Through strengthening prevention practices, we improve the health, well-being, and longevity across generations and communities.

AgePRIDE (Promoting Resilience for Intergenerational Diversity and Empowerment) serves LGBTQ+ older adults, care partners, and families across generations and communities.

Our evidence-based services and programs include health promotion, social engagement, social services, and educational and cultural events. We also provide resources, referrals and support to older adults and their families and circles of care for a range of services from housing support to dementia care.

Healthy Generations

Healthy Generations was established in 2013 at the University of Washington School of Social Work. Healthy Generations develops evidence-based interventions to address the needs of underserved older adults, care partners, and families to improve their health, wellness, and longevity.

Historically founded as one of five original Hartford Centers of Excellence established in Schools of Social Work across the country, Healthy Generations is distinguished by its innovation and responsiveness to the multigenerational nature of our society and is built upon more than two decades of landmark research conducted at the University of Washington. Through interdisciplinary and inter-professional collaborations in practice, education and research, Healthy Generations advances prevention, health promotion and healthy aging across the generations.
