The Texas A&M Center for Population Health and Aging has been recognized by the Healthcare Leadership Council with the 2019 Redefining American Healthcare Award.

Center Founding Director Marcia Ory and Co-Director Matthew Lee Smith received the award Aug. 13.

The center, created in 2017, focuses on strategies to promote health and successful aging. Staff members explore interactions between health, aging and technology, evaluate economic and policy issues related to population aging, and more.

“It is through the collaborative partnerships we are building across community, clinical and corporate sectors that we can make the triple aims of better health, better health care and better value a reality,” Ory said.

The Healthcare Leadership Council created the Redefining American Healthcare Award to recognize best practices and programs in communities and organizations across the nation that optimize care for high-need patients. Award recipients are organizations developing and activating cost-effective, measurable community programs promoting a patient-centered approach to care that considers outside social factors to achieve the best outcomes.
