Internal Medicine - Geriatric and Palliative Medicine
I am a clinical researcher in geriatrics with a focus on improving health and quality of life among older adults with obesity. My clinical interventions target optimization of obesity-related co-morbid conditions including pain and mood, and improvement of function with awareness of the patient neighborhood data (by area deprivation index). I believe effective interventions to address obesity and related issues can possibly be achieved with maximizing the utilization of community resources.
