CDC-HAN Focus Areas and Publications

Helping Older Americans Stay Healthy and Active

The potential impact of the HAN's work is substantial, given the aging U.S. Population. By 2030, one in every five Americans will be age 65 or older. As people age, their risk of developing chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, arthritis, and cognitive impairment increases, as does their risk for injury from falling. To address these and other risks, the Han conducts activities to help older adults retain their health and independence, while avoiding disease and injury. For older adults with chronic disease, the HAN focuses on helping them effectively manage their disease and avoid complications.

Publications are organized by focus areas:
