Exercise & Health Programs
Highest-Level Evidence-Based Programs
The area agencies on aging (AAAs) provide evidence-based disease prevention and health promotion for eligible Missourians. Eligible Missourians are individuals age 60 or older.
These services are intended to support healthy lifestyles. Evidence-based disease prevention and health promotion programs encourage healthy behaviors and socialization, which helps delay the onset of adverse health conditions among older people resulting in sedentary behavior. These programs focus on falls prevention, managing chronic diseases, behavioral health, caregiver support, and more.
Find your local AAA here for the evidence-based disease prevention and health promotion staff to assist you in finding services available in your area. You can also call the Missouri Senior Resource Line toll-free at 1-800-235-5503 to be connected with local assistance.
