Bob has always been a champion of introducing young people to care for the elderly. He began by contacting Brad Sheaffor in the Social Work school at CSU in the mid 70’s to start the internship program with students at Columbine Care Center. Today, around 20 students are interns through out Columbine Health Systems during any semester.
Annual Sponsorship of the Columbine Health Systems Gerontology Minor at CSU and $14,000 in student scholarships has been a priority for Bob for many years. In 2015, Bob and Kitty Wilson donated $5 million for the creation of the Columbine Health Systems Center for Healthy Aging.
Bob’s hope for the Center includes; a central place for all of the significant research currently occurring at CSU – biological, cognitive, psychological, social, and behavioral, an academic environment for older adults to participate in research and for CSU student learning opportunities, translational research with outreach and education to the community – the land grant mission of CSU, and recruitment of the best and brightest in aging research to create an extraordinary aging center.
