The David Druker Center for Health System Innovations at the Palo Alto Medical Foundation operates the linkAges program. The name linkAges stands for link across the ages. The goal of the program is to build community connections to support successful aging. The linkAges program combines time banking with local community supports and services to build social connections for the members. Time banking is a framework for people to exchange skills or teaching. Time banks create communities that include and engage residents of all ages.

In this interview, Dr. Tang describes the philosophy behind linkAges and explains how the program works.
