Social Work establishes Age-Friendly Innovation Center

The College of Social Work is pleased to announce its new Age-Friendly Innovation Center (AFIC). The mission of AFIC is to innovate with older adults through research, education and engagement to ensure inclusion and build resiliency to make communities more age-friendly. This will be achieved through collaborating with Ohio State interdisciplinary faculty, students and community partners. Building off five years of progress, the AFIC will continue to prioritize the contributions of older residents to improve social, built, and health environments that support livability for people of all ages and abilities. The new center will be located at Rev1 Labs, 1275 Kinnear Road and will be celebrated in an upcoming event.
