5 students and faculty in a Zoom meeting


Welcome to the Aging and Diversity Lab (ADL) in the Department of Kinesiology and Community Health at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

The ADL is coordinated by Dr. Andiara Schwingel, and has its focus on the study of aging across the lifespan and population diversity.

The mission of the ADL is to study the process that leads to healthy aging, optimizing wellbeing and independence as people age. Our mission is also to understand the cultural context in which people live in order to promote healthy communities across various social groups.


Lab meetings are held every Friday from 3pm to 4:30pm on Zoom.
