Through excellent membership from Drs. Jennifer Wolff and Cynthia Boyd and collaboration with colleagues across Johns Hopkins University, I will learn skills and competencies necessary for future success in developing and implementing innovative palliative care interventions for community-dwelling older adults with Heart Failure and physical frailty.  Training from public health, medicine, and nursing scientists in this program will provide me with invaluable experience and skills to conduct interdisciplinary research which improves patient outcomes at the individual and systems level.”
