Reynolds grant supports education on aging

Posted:

PROVIDENCE – A $1 million, four-year grant by the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation will help residents and practicing physicians learn how healthy aging and its interactions with disease affect older patients.

The grant, announced on June 7, was given to the Warren Alpert Medical School and the School of Public Health at Brown University.

The grant will fund the development and delivery of aging-related curricula at two Lifespan teaching hospitals affiliated with the medical school, Rhode Island Hospital and The Miriam Hospital.

The grant builds upon the previous work of Dr. Richard Besdine, also funded by the Reynolds Foundation, to integrate aging throughout the curriculum of the Alpert Medical School to reach “every student, every course, every year.”

Besdine is the director of the Center for Gerontology and Healthcare Research, director of the Division of Geriatrics in the Department of Medicine, and first Greer professor of geriatric medicine at the Alpert Medical School. •
