    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    As a Geriatrician with a Master’s degree in Epidemiology, I have an abiding interest in frailty and understanding the role of activity, sedentary behavior, and energy expenditure in the pathophysiology of aging. As a clinician, I conduct functional assessments and measure frailty in older adults daily in the inpatient and outpatient settings, and I use this information to guide my treatment recommendations.
