Welcome to the HAFA Lab!

In the Healthy Aging and Functional Ability Research Lab, we believe that age is just a number. We promote healthy aging by helping older adults engage in activities that are valuable to their health and independence. We study factors that may hinder or facilitate functional ability, which is the ability to do, take care of oneself and others, and enjoy life. Our research goal is to increase disability-free life expectancy for older adults by developing, testing, and implementing evidence-based programs.
