Welcome to the Center for Population Health and Aging (CPHA) at Duke University. CPHA was established in 2007, substantially expanded in 2011, and now constitutes one of the two centers in the Duke Population Research Institute (DuPRI). The primary purposes of CPHA are 1: To facilitate research and training at Duke on topics related to population health and aging, 2: To bring together and create a community of faculty members, research scientists, post-doctoral fellows, and graduate students who study these topics, and 3: To obtain externally-funded resources to accomplish these aims.
