About the Geriatric Research, Education and Clinical Center


31 July 2020



The goal of this GRECC is to improve the health of older Veterans through the development of innovative research, clinical and educational initiatives.

The research foci of our GRECC are:

  1. Consequences and Treatments of Obesity in Older Adults
  2. Gender Differences in Health (focusing on women’s health)

The Eastern Colorado GRECC focuses its training efforts on translating existing and new geriatrics knowledge and skills into clinical practice at the local, regional and national levels. These efforts build on the substantial geriatrics educational and training activities at the ECHCS and leverage important resources from the University of Colorado School of Medicine.


Eastern Colorado GRECC is a hub of clinical innovation committed to creating systems of support for Veterans as they age and across the continuum of care, regardless of geography. The Eastern Colorado GRECC participates in national clinical dissemination projects, including GRECC Connect and Gerofit. Clinical demonstration projects provide opportunities to integrate research, education and clinical services.
