The Community Research Center for Senior Health (CRC-Senior Health, The Center) is a partnership among Baylor Scott & White Health, Central Texas Area Agencies on Aging and Aging, Disability and Veterans Resource Center (AAA/ADVRC), and the Texas A&M Health Science Center School of Public Health. It is built on the partners’ capacity to conduct state-of-the-art applied health science research and education to improve Senior Health.

The Center has established a sustainable infrastructure that promotes an interdisciplinary approach to senior health intervention research, develops community-academic health center relationships which foster community participation, and provides guidance and support to investigators and community leaders in research design, evaluation, and data analytic techniques.

The CRC-Senior Health’s leadership team is comprised of a representative from each partner. Dr. Alan Stevens of Baylor Scott & White Health is the director, Dr. Marcia Ory of the School of Public Health is the associate director for academic research, and Mr. Richard McGhee of the Central Texas Area Agency on Aging is the associate director for community research.
