VA Geriatric Research, Education and Clinical Center (VA GRECC)

There are several GRECCs across the United States competing for grants to conduct a wide array of aging-related research, with the goal of being prepared to meet the challenges of providing care to the aging World War II veteran population, as well as the following aging generations of veterans.

The Gainesville site scientists and physicians at the VA Geriatric, Research, Education and Clinical Center  collaborate closely with the University of Florida in all aspects of their mission: education, patient care and research.

The GRECC physicians with appointments at the University of Florida’s Department of Aging are: Dr. John Meuleman and Dr. Laurence Solberg.
