NATIONAL INSTITUTE ON AGING

Dear Website Visitor:

Welcome to the Long Life Family Study (LLFS) website. The purpose of the LLFS is to learn about factors that contribute to long healthy life in families. Understanding these factors can help identify ways to improve the amount of time that others spend in good health during their lifetime. The study is funded by the National Institute on Aging (NIA), part of the National Institutes of Health. The NIA leads a national program of research on the prevention of age-related diseases and disabilities and the promotion of a better quality of life for all older Americans.

We are interested in talking to families with members over age 79 to discover why some people are able to avoid diseases and disabilities. Information about participating in the study can be found on this website. The LLFS investigators are committed to protecting, to the highest possible level, the privacy of all personal information and data collected from study participants.

The goal of this and other aging research is to find ways to help people lead healthy lives as long as possible. With your help, we believe that the Long Life Family Study can contribute significantly to this goal. Thank you for visiting our website.
