Monera Wong MD, grew up in London, England. She received her medical degree from Royal Free Hospital, School of Medicine in 1994. She completed her training in Geriatric Medicine before moving to Boston to join her husband in 2001. Monera initially volunteered at MGH Senior Health before taking up her fellowship position here in 2002.

Monera decided to pursue a career in medicine because it seemed like a noble profession, and no one in her family was a doctor.

At MGH Senior Health, Monera enjoys the opportunity to practice evidence-based medicine. She finds helping patients negotiate the complex healthcare system to be the most rewarding part of her job.

Her research interest is in dementia. She has conducted research and is committed to providing caregiver support for patients with dementia. Her current research is on screening for dementia in primary care. Monera has also written extensively on Geriatric Medicine for the web.

Outside of the practice, Monera is a member of several professional societies, including the American Geriatrics society and the American Medical Directors Association.

In her spare time, she enjoys practicing yoga and hiking with her husband and son.

“Hearing their life stories and how that influences their health choices is a unique aspect of caring for an older population.”
