This edited volume results from a 1-day-conference, “Successful Aging Through the Life Span—Intergenerational Issues in Health,” which was held on October 7, 2002, in Cleveland, Ohio. The editors wish to thank members of the planning committee for their invaluable assistance in the development of the program. Thanks also to—among others—the A.M. McGregor Home, Cleveland, Ohio; Janssen Pharmaceutica Products, Pfizer Inc.; the Mt. Sinai Health Care Foundation, Cleveland, Ohio; and St. Luke’s Foundation of Cleveland, Ohio—for their generous support for the conference.

We are also appreciative of Charles L. Onyett, a student assistant, for his help with section introductions.
