“I have had wonderful opportunities to focus on the care of hospitalized older adults and how we can improve systems of care to improve outcomes for older adults. I love the Geriatrics Section because of the friendly, caring faculty and the opportunity to work with amazing fellows. We all relish the opportunities to share our love for geriatrics with all learners.”
