Stefanie Piña Escudero will be working towards developing a better understanding of mistreatment in people with cognitive impairment and intervention strategies.

Stefanie believes that in Mexico there are many gaps in the law which leave people with cognitive impairment vulnerable to mistreatment.

To achieve GBHI’s mission the main thing we have to focus on is the education of healthcare professionals and the community-dwelling population. I am working towards greater understanding of the mistreatment of this population. In my free time I try to make the best of the time I have with my 96 year old grandmother and the rest of my family.

Bio: Stefanie received her medical school training from the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México where she completed her training in Internal Medicine and Geriatrics.
