The Hartford Change AGEnts Initiative accelerates sustained practice change that improves the health of older Americans, their families, and communities. It does this by harnessing the collective strengths, resources, and expertise of the John A. Hartford Foundation’s interprofessional community of more than 3,000 scholars, clinicians, and health system leaders.

About Hartford Change Agents

For more than two decades, the John A. Hartford Foundation has supported a dynamic group of academic and clinical leaders in geriatric medicine, nursing, and social work.
