Claude D. Pepper Older Americans Independence Centers (OAIC)The goal of the OAIC program is to increase scientific knowledge that allows older adults to maintain or restore their independence. The NIA supports the OAICs to develop and enhance research and education at institutions with strong programs in aging research. This support is critical to address key research problems, technological limitations, and faculty development needs for future generations of appropriately-trained researchers. The OAICs are also known as "Pepper Centers" - so named to honor the late Senator Claude D. Pepper who championed the effort to create these centers of excellence. - Dalane W. Kitzman, MD, Director
PREPARE for Your Care helps you:
- Have a voice in YOUR medical care
- Talk to your doctors about your wishes
- Give your family and friends peace of mind
PREPARE helps you make informed decisions and get the care that is right for you.
It is OK if you are not ready to make these decisions right now. PREPARE can help you get started.
PREPARE walks you through an easy, 5-step process with video stories and questions to help you decide what matters most.
Each step takes about 10 minutes.
After doing any step in the program, PREPARE creates a "Summary of My Wishes" form. Click here to learn more about the Summary.
