Personal Statement  It is important not to lose sight of the person and their family when someone develops a brain illness. I work with persons with cognitive impairment, major neurocognitive disorders (dementia, Alzheimer’s disease), older adults with mental illness, and family caregivers. Helping patients and families navigate the complexities, treatment options, course and current medical understandings of neurocognitive disorders and mental illness are among the aspects of my work I find most rewarding.  Improvement in how we deliver healthcare to older adults with brain illnesses is one of the focuses of my research.
