If you've done any work in the fields of Geriatrics Medicine or Healthy Aging, you've almost certainly come across Jennie Chin Hansen, my guest on today's episode. Jennie is the former President of AARP, the former CEO of the American Geriatrics Society and currently a Board Member of the SCAN Health Plan (which funds the Healthy Skeptic, MD Podcast). Jennie also spent 25 years as a nurse leader at the San Francisco-based On Lok program developing creative care models for older adults, including the Program for All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE), which has become a national Medicare program. In today's episode, Jennie and I discussed what the next several years may look like for the field of Geriatrics and the care of older adults.
