Personal Statement

It is a tremendous honor to join the Geriatrics and Palliative Medicine Division at Weill Cornell. As a primary care provider at the Center on Aging, I am deeply committed to working with patients, families, and my interdisciplinary colleagues to optimize the health and well-being of older adults. In addition, I strive to teach students and physicians-in-training about the joys and complexities of providing person-centered, comprehensive geriatric care.
