Dr. Jeanne Wei, Director of the
UAMS Reynolds Institute on Aging

With the largest generation of Americans ever entering the latter stages of life and people living longer than ever before, it's crucial to ensure that state-of-the-art technology, research and patient care is readily available to the citizens of Arkansas.

Welcome to the UAMS Donald W. Reynolds Institute on Aging, where the needs of an aging generation are met with the highest standards of service, research and care currently available.

Established through a $28.8 million gift from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation, the Reynolds Institute on Aging recognizes that by the end of the next decade there will be as many retired Americans as there are children, and that the focus of health care must shift from merely keeping people alive longer to making those later years healthier and more productive. In other words, the focus is not adding years to life; rather, it's adding life to years.

Through the generosity of the Reynolds Foundation in providing an additional $33.4 million gift in 2009, we are poised to expand our services, continuing our tradition of providing world-class medical care to the citizens of Arkansas.
