Dr. Rebecca Starr, Division of Geriatrics, Palliative Care and Post-Acute Medicine, has been accepted to participate in the Bedside to Bench Conference, Delirium in Older Adults: Finding Order in the Disorder in February 2014. The Conference is supported by the National Institute on Aging, the American Geriatrics Society, and the John A. Hartford Foundation. "It is the major annual planning venue for researchers in delirium," says Dr. Maura Brennan, Division Chief.
Dr. Starr has also been accepted into the next class of the Harvard Macy Program for Post-Graduate Trainees: Future Academic Clinician-Educators. The Program addresses two major themes: skills in teaching and learning; and scholarship in medical education. Dr. Starr's project will center on the geriatrics curriculum for the primary care residents and include development of a senior mentor program.
