    "A pleasure to work with since 2004"

    “It has been our pleasure to work with the various Arbor Terrace facilities of the greater Atlanta area since 2004. Our Arbor partners have shown great enthusiasm for expanding their employees’ knowledge base as well as outreaching to residents and their families. We have found the relationship with Arbor to be quite fruitful: the CHA gains an opportunity to train committed health professionals and to interact directly in a friendly setting with the aging community, while the Arbor staff benefits from high-quality education delivered from university-based, top ranked geriatricians and gerontologists. The Emory Center for Health in Aging is committed to promoting healthy aging and to providing quality education to community members in our region. Our strong partnership with the Arbor Terrace facilities in the Atlanta area has afforded us many valuable opportunities to help fulfill this commitment.”

    - Director, Division of Geriatric Medicine and Gerontology
