“Being a Geriatrician and caring for older adults is challenging but very rewarding. We have the privilege of helping people age in place as well as helping them through difficult times of their lives like an acute hospitalization. I thoroughly enjoy teaching and forming the next generation of geriatricians to understand the implications that the aging process has and how we can provide better, patient-centered care for our patients.”
