We are Oregon's Network in the Field of Aging

The world is aging and that impacts every business, non-profit, or governmental agency. What's your aging strategy? OGA can help!

Our Vision: We envision Oregon as a great place to grow old. Our statewide network enables service providers, researchers, students and other individuals to share knowledge, address challenging issues, and demonstrate that age is an asset.

Our Mission: Our mission is to improve the lives of older Oregonians by enhancing knowledge and cultivating a network of professionals and other individuals interested in the field of aging.
