I am an Internist/Geriatrician with the Department of Medicine, Division of Geriatrics, and The Barshop for Longevity and Aging Studies. My research focuses on understanding the geriatric syndrome of frailty through epidemiologic and translational research. I provide clinical care at Audie L. Murphy VA Hospital, where I serve as the Associate Director for Clinical Programs with the Geriatrics Research, Education and Clinical Center (GRECC). In this role, I collaborate with other providers and interdisciplinary team members to design and implement new models of care to improve care for the aging veteran. I am actively engaged in research mentoring and clinical teaching to trainees at all levels through my research and clinical care in both inpatient and outpatient settings.
