A Message From Dr. Rebecca Boxer

A committed system means that programs and health care initiatives for older adults can truly be realized. I have devoted my life and career to caring for older adults with multiple chronic conditions, functional decline, dementia and frailty. As a geriatrician, my research interests are broad and include heart failure disease management, nursing home care, polypharmacy and social determinants of health. I recognize that aging issues span specialties care settings. From inpatient to our Healthy Aging Clinic and into the community, our division team partners with colleagues in other specialties and disciplines in order to better serve our aging population. My hope is to provide excellent care to our patients and collaborate across disciplines, to teach all levels of learners the nuts and bolts of caring for older adults. I also want to be a conduit for national opportunities for faculty interested in aging research.

Our team collaborates with clinicians, researchers who study issues affecting older adults, and educators at the UC Davis School of Medicine and the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis and trains the next generation of geriatric providers through our geriatric-focused fellowships. I look forward to continuing driving and building upon the significant advancements to promote the healthiest and highest-functioning older adult population in Northern California.
