UNC has a range of programs and faculty studying issues of aging, and these groups work with the Geriatric Oncology Program.

The Institute on Aging works across North Carolina to enhance the well-being of older North Carolinians by fostering statewide collaboration in research, education and service.

The UNC Center for Aging and Health is a leading geriatric clinical, research, education, and training site.

The Palliative Care Consult Service, a clinical program at UNC Hospitals, provides care and support for patients with life-limiting illnesses such as cancer.

The Supportive Care Consultation Service and Clinic faculty and staff work with patients to manage pain, symptoms, and treatment side effects.

The program includes an emerging number of clinical trials focused on cancer in older persons.

All of these groups are coming together with the goal of offering patients and families everything they may need to manage their cancer journey in the best possible way.
