Since 2014, our goal has remained the same — to reframe the conversation about longer and healthier lives to focus on ideas, strengths, and solutions. Global Health Aging started out of a desire to change the narrative, improve quality of life, and bring together stories and current events on aging from around the world. Several years in and we have become an entrepreneurial hub changing the landscape of aging through engagement, outreach, and communications. Our mission is to empower people to take charge of their longevity by exploring what it means and will look like for them. Aging begins the moment we are born, and the earlier we practice healthy habits, the better for our future.
We have featured news stories, diverse opinions, and research about living and aging well in a changing world. Our articles are cited and mentioned in several magazines, journals, and websites, such as the International Health Section of the American Public Health Association, Seniors Matter (now known as Seasons), GOOD Magazine, and the Journal of Emergencies, Trauma, and Shock. As a result, we earned nominations for the WEGO Health Awards in Patient Leader Hero, Rookie of the Year, Healthcare Collaborator, and Best Kept Secret categories. WEGO Health (now known as the Social Health Network) is the world’s largest network of patient thought leaders, health influencers, and advocates.
We were also recognized as a resource for research on aging and age-related diseases by Dahlgren Memorial Library, the Graduate Health & Life Sciences Research Library at Georgetown University Medical Center. Our latest project, Five Questions With, is an interview series about the science of well-being and health. The series features visionaries in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM), ranging from researchers to entrepreneurs, storytellers, and innovators. In the end, we hope for more robust and honest conversations about aging. If you are interested in working with us to improve the quality of life as we age, please send us a message! We are also available for select advisory and consulting engagements.
