Words of Strength
Anna believes we need timely, compassionate, and comprehensive diagnosis for everyone with symptoms - no matter their background or primary language - and thorough counseling and connection to resources for the person living with dementia and their support systems.
Anna is a geriatrician working in the safety net to develop clinical programs for older adults with cognitive complaints to support these patients and tools and resources for the primary care teams that continue to manage them throughout their disease progression.
Anna seeks to redesign and improve outpatient safety net care to be more competent in serving older adults, particularly those with dementia. She is passionate about teaching colleagues and trainees about the care of those with dementia and its social determinants.
