Co-Chairs: Lauren Ferrante, MD, MHS & Una Makris, MD, MSc (Medical Specialties) and Chris Carpenter, MD, MSc (SEGUE)
The Medical Specialties Section was developed in 2002 by the Association of Specialty Professors project “Integrating Geriatrics into the Specialties of Internal Medicine: Moving Forward from Awareness to Action,” funded by The John A. Hartford Foundation and Atlantic Philanthropies, Inc.
This year's section meeting will feature a panel of medical and surgical subspecialty leaders discussing resilience/grit when pursuing an aging-focused agenda in one’s specialty and in one’s career. The multidisciplinary panel includes the following speakers:
Ula Hwang, MD, MPH (Emergency Medicine)
Heidi Klepin, MD (Hematology & Medical Oncology)
Sasha Adams, MD (Trauma Surgery)
The panel, together with the session co-chairs, will then lead breakout sessions to allow time for small group discussion. All medical and surgical subspecialists are encouraged to attend.
