New Division name: "Geriatrics & Gerontology". We have changd our division name! We are no longer just the Division of Geriatrics. Instead, we have expanded our name - encompassing not only the efforts of our division in geriatrics, but also gerontology! What is Gerontology?
New Faculty members have joined our team as the Division continues to grow! We welcome Chris Kaufmann, PhD, and Maile Karris, MD, who have joined our research faculty. We are also excited to have EB Sladek, MD and Josh Bollan, MD, who are great additions to our clinical faculty.
