The Age of Aging is Finally Here!

With scientific breakthroughs, an unprecedented global demographic shift toward an older population, increasing life expectancy, and a growing awareness of the social, economic, and political challenges of aging, gerontology is now center stage.

Never has the field been more important or thrilling. Never have gerontologists been in more demand or their work more meaningful.

It’s about time! As the first, largest, and most renowned institution on aging in the world, the University of
Southern California Leonard Davis School of Gerontology is the place.pg1_bg

The way the world will look tomorrow is being shaped by the gerontologists of today.
