About the Stanford iSAGE: Internet-based Successful Aging

The Stanford Internet-based Successful Aging (iSAGE) project is a project aimed at improving quality of life and quality of care for all older Americans from diverse backgrounds. iSAGE offers a an entirely web-based, video rich immersion training in the principles of successful aging for the general public as well as health workers. It is unique in that it allows learners to specialize in the health and health care of thirteen different ethno-cultural groups commonly seen in the US including:

  • African Americans,
  • Alaska Natives,
  • American Indians,
  • Asian Indian Americans,
  • Chinese Americans,
  • Filipino Americans,
  • Hawaiian and Pacific Islanders,
  • Hispanic/Latino Americans,
  • Hmong Americans,
  • Japanese Americans,
  • Korean Americans,
  • Pakistani Americans, and
  • Vietnamese Americans.

We currently have over 110 mini-fellows enrolled in iSAGE. Interested participants can enroll in the iSAGE virtual mini-fellowship and join our community of mini-fellows to learn about successful aging. Program highlights include video lectures from nationally recognized leaders and pioneers in the field of Successful Aging and End of life care. All mini-fellows participate in a secure interaction forum and have free ongoing dialog. Immersion learning is facilitated using quizzes and assignments. Skill training is accrued by completing a mentored field project in an area of specific interest to the mini-fellow.

The iSAGE project is directed by Dr. VJ Periyakoil and a part of the larger e-Campus project. iSAGE is funded and supported in part by the National Institute of Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD)/ National Institutes of Health, the Dept of Veterans Affairs and the VA Palo Alto Health Care System. iSAGE project is under the auspices of the Office of Diversity and Leadership, Stanford University School of Medicine.
