It is our great pleasure to announce that Dr. Benjamin Han is joining the faculty in the Division of Geriatrics and Gerontology and the VA San Diego Healthcare System in the ambulatory care program.
Dr. Han is a clinician-scientist whose research focuses on unhealthy substance use in older adults and the intersection of chronic disease and substance use. He comes to us from New York University School of Medicine where, since 2013, he was on the faculty in the Division of Geriatric Medicine and Palliative Care. In addition to his work on unhealthy substance use funded in part by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, he precepted geriatrics fellows and was a regular mentor for students in the Medical Student Training in Aging Research Program, he was a primary care physician in geriatric medicine and a physician in the buprenorphine/addiction clinic at Bellevue Hospital Center.
Join us in helping seniors live their best lives longer. Addressing the needs of our older adults is important now more than ever! Your donations ensure that our research and clinical care keep pace with the needs of our community and ensure our initiatives to further educate the geriatrics work force remain strong and expand.
