The Tennessee Coalition for Better Aging exists to promote the general welfare of older Tennesseans and their families, through partnerships that mobilize resources to educate and advocate for important policies and programs.

The Coalition for Better Aging will continue to take collective action to ensure that older Tennesseans can age with dignity.
