Donald W. Reynolds Institute on Aging
Established through a $28.8 million gift from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation, the UAMS Institute on Aging recognizes that by the end of the next decade there will be as many retired Americans as there are children, and that the focus of health care must shift from merely keeping people alive longer to making those later years healthier and more productive. The Institute is where the needs of the aging generation are met with the highest standards of service, research, and care currently available.
The Geriatrics faculty has developed a robust and successful clinical program that not only provides superb patient care, but also serves as an ideal laboratory for education and clinical research.
