WAVE Special Speak Series: Integrative Geriatrics: The Future of Medicine For Older Adults
Join us September 29th, 9 a.m. - 10 a.m., for a discussion with Dr. Mikhail Kogan, a leader in the newly established field of Integrative Geriatrics. He is an Associate Professor of Medicine at The George Washington University, Medical Director of the GW Center for Integrative Medicine and serves as an associate director of the Geriatrics Fellowship Program. He is the editor of the first definitive textbook in the field of Integrative Geriatric Medicine and is the founder and Executive Director of AIM Health Institute, a non-profit organization in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area which provides integrative medicine services to low-income and terminally ill patients regardless of their ability to pay. Dr. Kogan is a frequent speaker at national and international conferences on topics ranging from Integrative Medicine and Geriatrics to healthy aging, neurodegenerative diseases and the use of medical cannabis.
Too often, care for older adults relies on prescription medications and invasive interventions. Dr. Kogan will discuss effective non-traditional-pharmacological, integrative, holistic approaches to managing illness and promoting wellness.
The program is being produced in coordination with the Positive Aging Community.
