LeadingAge LTSS Center @UMass Boston

The LeadingAge LTSS Center @UMass Boston conducts research designed to help our nation address the challenges and seize the opportunities associated with a growing older population.

LeadingAge and the University of Massachusetts Boston established the joint center in 2017. The center, with offices in Washington, DC and Boston, is the first of its kind to blend the resources of a major research university with the expertise and experience of applied researchers working with providers in the field of long-term services and supports (LTSS).
