The Sanford Center for Aging, at the University of Nevada, Reno will soon open its Geriatric Clinic to provide evaluations and referral of aging adults. The Sanford Center Geriatric Clinic will offer a comprehensive geriatric assessment and support center for elders.
The Sanford Center Geriatric Clinic, located in the Division of Health Sciences, was recently given approval by the University of Nevada Medical School to develop the program. Adults will be evaluated for frailty, cognitive illness, and medications. Often frailty leads to falls, a major health occurrence with boomers and seniors that can be prevented.
Medical Director of the Geriatric Clinic is Dr. Steven Phillips, one of the few practicing geriatric physicians in Nevada. "The specialty care clinic offers a "whole person" assessment and chronic care management services, provided by a multidisciplinary team, centered around the goals, strengths and needs of each client."
Additionally, the Nevada legislature made a major commitment of $5.5 million last session to expand public medical education in the state.
As UNLV focuses on creating a medical school in Southern Nevada, an equally important commitment has been made to create a full, four-year campus in Reno at Nevada's first, and still statewide public medical school, the University of Nevada School of Medicine. Historically, the School of Medicine has been driven by geography, with two partial campuses separated by 450 miles and the vastness of Nevada's rural communities.
With the help of $5.5 million in incremental support, the School of Medicine will focus on primary care education and training with a research-intensive, community- based vision, new and strong hospital and community physician partnerships and outreach to Nevada's rural areas, said Dr. Thomas Schwenk, M.D., dean of the School of Medicine. Part of the statewide vision includes a new residency training partnerships in Las Vegas, which will position it to better meet the massive needs and challenges brought on by health care reform.
