Eldercare Voices

“Eldercare Voices” is an occasional feature of the Dual Agenda, inviting guest commentators directly involved in care delivery to older adults to share their perspectives from the field. This edition's column on preventing fall is from Audrey Chun, MD, Vice Chair for Clinical Services in the Brookdale Department of Geriatrics and Palliative Medicine, and Director of Coffey Geriatrics at the Martha Stewart Center for Living at the Mount Sinai Medical Center. Dr. Chun is a Geriatric Provider Advocate in New York, partnering with the coalition of advocacy groups working to shape the state’s dual eligible demonstration project.
