The Emerging Leaders in Aging (ELIA) program is a national leadership development program that trains a cadre of interprofessional leaders focused on the health and well-being of older people. ELIA competitively selects junior and mid-career leaders in clinical, research, policy, and education initiatives in aging. The program consists of activities spanning one year, with the anticipation that the community of leaders will remain meaningful colleagues for each other throughout their careers.
