Geriatric Interest Group

While our focus is geriatrics, many of our events wil be of interest to anyone looking to go into internal medicine or family medicine. We will be having lectures given by Upstate faculty on topics such as the metabolism of drugs in the elderly, the unique ways that disease presents itself in the older patient and how to speak to a person with dementia. For those who are interested we will be going to area nursing homes to hold group activities for the residents, everything from medical education to arts and crafts and music.
