Up to this point in my career my research has spanned many areas of medicine (Dermatology, Neurology, Gastroenterology, and Gerontology) in an attempt to find my true calling. Now that I am a specialist in the area of Geriatrics and Palliative Care medicine I would like my future research to focus on quality improvement projects in these fields.
