Programs in this department focus on the physiological and psychosocial aspects of health, wellness, illness, and aging.

  • We help to meet the health needs of an ever-changing society through innovative education across the lifespan.
  • We foster scholarly inquiry within and across disciplines, and we integrate and apply new knowledge that contributes to improving lifespan health.
  • We further improve lifespan health by reaching out and partnering with others on the UD campus, communities, professional organizations, the medical community, government agencies, business, and industry.
