Disease Prevention and Health Promotion
The Title III-D, Disease Prevention and Health Promotion Program of the OAA was established in 1987. It provides grants to States and Territories based on their share of the population aged 60 and over for education and implementation activities that support healthy lifestyles and promote healthy behaviors. Health education reduces the need for more costly medical interventions. Priority is given to serving elders living in medically underserved areas of the State or who are of greatest economic need.
