The Patterson Foundation strengthens the efforts of people, organizations, and communities by focusing on issues that can lead to impact at local, state, national and global levels. In alignment with The Patterson Foundation’s values, the National Council on Aging brings together people, businesses, nonprofits, government, and the media – to download programs, services, and policies that improve the health and well-being of communities.
The Patterson Foundation has a strong relationship with the National Council on Aging. Two previous successful initiatives have joined these organizations including the Self-Management Alliance from 2012-2014 and the Aging Mastery Program® from 2015-2018.
The National Council on Aging’s Aging Hub is one of numerous hubs of the 100 Million Healthier Lives
movement. The movement is an unprecedented collaboration of change agents across sectors that are collaborating to fundamentally transform the way the world thinks and acts to improve health, well-being, and equity to get to breakthrough results. The National Council on Aging’s Aging Hub works to create and support a nationwide ecosystem for measuring, fostering, and bringing to scale innovations that address the social and behavioral determinants of health for older adults in the community. As leader of the Aging Hub, the National Council on Aging is encouraging other national, state, and local partners to participate in this nationwide initiative, so we can achieve change across the health system.
