Colorado is one of three states within the U.S. with the fastest growing population of older adults. Moreover, the city of Colorado Springs has increasingly become a place where older adults decide to retire and to live an important part of their life. As these developments continue and as the region and state move into a new millennium, the Gerontology Center at UCCS will play a crucial role in linking the work and interests of researchers and practitioners in gerontology with the needs and potentials of the surrounding community and the state.
