PiAP links UNC with people, organizations, and communities to support opportunities across generations. At PiAP, we seek to foster a vision of later life as a time for continued growth and contribution. We engage students, faculty, and community members to challenge stereotypes, growing together through intergenerational dialogue. Annually, we support doctoral fellowships, a post-doc, a community living-learning household, graduate interns in Social Work, Occupational Therapy, Public Health, Nursing, and more. Our mission is to facilitate vibrant University-Community partnerships and academic initiatives to cultivate age-embracing people and communities. We are continuing to grow and we hope you will join us in our efforts!”
PiAP is dedicated to supporting diverse communities and older adults as we navigate this changing world. COVID-19 and movements across our nation for racial equity have shed needed light on the challenges and risks of living in long term care facilities, especially for people of color. We have been developing a new model of high-quality long-term care delivered in neighborhoods, not institutions. Now, it’s time to break ground! Your gift during GiveUNC will support a graduate student intern to coordinate this multi-pronged effort. Please consider giving to this important, timely initiative.
