Board of Older Adult Advisors

Starting in 2022, WINRS provided support to the Center for Aging Research and Education to develop two Boards of Older Adult Advisors (BOAAs) – one whose members are from Madison, WI and one whose members are from smaller, more rural communities in Wisconsin.


The BOAAs are adapted from the practices of CARDS and the Bureau of Sages. The mission of these two new advisory boards is to provide feedback on project and recruitment materials, with a specific focus on research projects geared towards aging and the wellbeing of older adults.
