Welcome to the OSU S.A.G.E. Program!

Welcome to the new and improved OSU S.A.G.E. Program website!  This site is still under construction
so let us know if something isn't working for you or you have any questions. 

We hope you have heard about The Ohio State University Series in Applied Gerontology Education (S.A.G.E.) Program and are visiting the web site to gather some additional information, or maybe you were searching the Internet in pursuit of aging education opportunities, and in particular "distance education" in the field of aging. In any case, we are very proud of this distance education program of the Office of Geriatrics and Interprofessional Aging Studies at The Ohio State University, and hope you will spend a few minutes becoming more familiar with what the program has to offer.

Please note that this webiste is currently housed on a temporary webiste. The website and all associated data will be moved to the new S.A.G.E. Program website prior to spring semester 2018.  
 

No demographic trend is more important or more fundamental than the changing age structure of our society. Today, 14.5% of the U.S. population is over age 65 and as "baby boomers" become "senior boomers" they are expected to represent a full 20% of our population by 2030.
