Welcome to the Columbine Health Systems Center for Healthy Aging

The Columbine Health Systems Center for Healthy Aging is a catalyst for interdisciplinary research and evidence-based outreach and education about healthy aging. As a community-engaged center, we aim to be a premier local, regional, and nationally-recognized resource for discovery and application of research on biological, cognitive, psychological, social, and behavioral factors that lead to healthy and successful aging.

Director of Columbine Health Systems Center for Healthy Aging

CSU is pleased to introduce Dr. Nicole Ehrhart as the inaugural Director of the Columbine Health Systems Center for Healthy Aging. Dr. Ehrhart, one of CSU’s foremost experts in translational medicine, was selected to lead the healthy aging center in CSU’s Health and Medical Center after a national search. She will start her position on August 1. She says her vision for the center, which was launched in 2017 with a $5 million gift from Columbine Health Systems owner Bob Wilson and his wife Kitty, involves creating a place where various disciplines come together to extend "healthspan," or the period during which one is free of diseases that limit quality of life.
