Gerontology and Geriatrics

The NYIT Center for Gerontology and Geriatrics was established in September 2007. Housed in the Riland Academic Health Care Center at NYIT's College of Osteopathic Medicine in Old Westbury, N.Y., the center sponsors a multidisciplinary program of applied research, education, community service, and advocacy. Working in collaboration with the academic community, government, civic, professional and business groups, and funders, its overall mission is to help prepare for an aging society on the regional, state, national, and global levels.

The NYIT Center for Gerontology and Geriatrics is one of the first academic centers on aging in the nation to give important attention to suburban aging and the unique consequences for health and human services, housing, community sustainability, and other critical factors related to promoting aging-in-place, productive aging, and aging-friendly, and aging-capable community living.

Tobi Abramson, Ph.D., is the center’s director and a faculty expert on gerontology and geriatrics. She also serves as assistant professor of mental health counseling at NYIT's School of Health Professions.
