Introducing linkAges

The David Druker Center for Health Systems Innovation (Druker Center) invents and deploys breakthrough innovations to advance the health and well-being of communities. We apply human-centered design and leverage technology to create scalable solutions that address the pressing health challenges of our time.

Our work is based on the following core beliefs:

  • Health is more than health care.

  • Everyone in a community has something to contribute to each other’s health.

  • Health systems must partner with communities to support each community’s unique needs.

Our incubation project, linkAges™ is a network that connects people of all ages to build healthy communities beyond the doctor’s office. The Druker Center created linkAges to address loneliness and social isolation as key barriers to the continued health and well-being of our aging communities. Since 2013, linkAges has sought to reduce social isolation by connecting people of all ages through rewarding exchanges of abilities and interests. Communities are strengthened as members interact with one another to share and learn skills or to give and receive help.

We are looking for volunteer college interns to support our work! If you are empathetic, passionate about community health, and enjoy connecting with people of different ages, join us.
