Conducted in partnership with AARP and Michigan Medicine, the National Poll on Healthy Aging (NPHA) is a nationally representative survey which aims to inform the public, health care providers, policymakers, and advocates on issues related to health, healthcare, and health policy affecting adults age 50-80 and their families.
