Planning and Research

“Stay focused. Be accountable. Plan boldly.”  

As DAS’ organizational development unit, the Program Integrity section helps Georgia’s aging network observe those powerful principles through a combination of analysis, coaching, forecasting, and strategy.  DAS, Area Agencies on Aging, and their providers make collaborative, results-driven program and policy decisions that reinforce DAS’ vision – to help older adults and people with disabilities live longer, live safely, and live well. The efforts are paying off.  Georgia is a recognized leader in the nation’s aging network – a state to watch for fearless innovation.
