Mission Statement

It is estimated that by the year 2030, there will be more than 20 million people in North America over the age of 85. With the burgeoning aging population, it is incumbent upon responsible scientists to conduct and report research that focuses on the needs of this growing but disenfranchised segment of the population. Therefore, the mission of The Foundation for Aging Studies and Exercise Science Research (Foundation) is to provide resources in support of research in the areas of aging studies, exercise science, nutrition, and environmental physiology. Teaching and research projects, laboratory development, library development, and a plan to act as a clearinghouse for information dissemination will enable the Foundation to achieve its goals. A special feature of the Foundation is its interdisciplinary focus. Interaction between researchers and students from various disciplines bring theory, methodology, and experience to bear on the analysis of aging and exercise to provide knowledge and accessible programs that will enrich the lives of citizens of all ages.

Through extensive collaboration with scientists and researchers in these fields, the Foundation desires to develop a research model to enable people of all ages to enhance self awareness of their capabilities; improve and maintain health throughout their lives through exercise, physical fitness, nutrition, and lifestyle practices that increase mental and physical capacities; and, create opportunities for achieving optimum levels of life satisfaction.
