Atlanta/Birmingham Geriatric Research, Education, and Clinical Center (GRECC)
GRECCs are Veterans Health Administration centers of excellence focused on aging. They were established by Congress in 1975 in order to improve the health and health care of older Veterans. They have three main missions:
- To build new knowledge in geriatric care through research
- To improve health care for older Veterans by developing innovative clinical models of care
- To provide training and education on best practices in caring for older adults for students in healthcare disciplines and VA staff
