Welcome from
David L. Roth, PhD

As the Director of the Johns Hopkins University Center on Aging and Health (COAH), I welcome you and thank you for visiting our website!

The Center consists of more than 40 faculty members from Johns Hopkins University’s schools of Medicine, Public Health, and Nursing who collaborate with other investigators at Johns Hopkins and around the world to pursue exciting goals in the areas of research, training, clinical care, and public service.  Our overriding objective is to discover new and more effective ways to promote the health and well-being of older adults, and to help them continue to make valuable contributions to our communities. 

In addition to our innovative research projects, such as those on family caregiving, cognitive and sensory functioning, physical mobility, social engagement, and frailty and resiliency, we have active predoctoral and postdoctoral training programs and numerous partnerships with community stakeholders.   Read the full welcome message here.
