San Diego Top Doctors! It is with pleasure that we announce our Division Chief, Dr. Alison Moore, was voted one of San Diego's Top Doctors in the annual "Physicians of Exceptional Excellence" survey.
New Grant Award! We are excited to announce that we have new funding to establish the "San Diego Resource Center for advancing Alzheimer's Research in Minority Seniors (SDRC-ARMS)"! This is a joint partnership between the UC San Diego Division of Geriatrics and Gerontology and Department of Neurosciences and San Diego State University's Graduate School of Public Health and Department of Psychology. This grant, funded by the National Institute on Aging, will provide five years of important funding to support research investigators in the field and to move forward important research on Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementias – particularly with a focus on Latinos.
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.
Congratulations to Stephanie Diana Garcia and Courtney Cyril Hsu! They are both graduating medical students and the 2018 recipients of the Ruth Covell Award in Geriatrics, in recognition of their demonstrated commitment to geriatrics! This award was established in 2017 thanks to the generous support of Dr. Ruth Covell.
Dr. Roopali Gupta and Dr. Maile Karris were selected for the 2018-2019 Tideswell, AGS and ADGAP Emerging Leaders in Aging Scholars Program!
