Dr. Carla Herman Receives Association of Directors of Geriatric Academic Programs Award

Carla Herman, M.D., M.P.H., associate professor and chief of the Gerontology Division, within the UNM School of Medicine's Department of Internal Medicine, is one of five national geriatric leaders to be awarded the 2002 Association of Directors of Geriatric Academic Programs (ADGAP) award.

The ADGAP, through funding from the John A. Hartford Foundation, has developed a three-year training program to increase the leadership skills of geriatric program directors through intensive formal training, close mentorship and strong peer-support. The philosophy behind the award is that as medical schools and graduate medical education programs increase their efforts to create a physician work force capable of providing high quality care for the growing elderly population, geriatrics programs will be placed in more prominent roles in academic health centers.

Drs. John Trotter and Sanjeev Arora within the UNM School of Medicine, will serve as Hermann's local mentors. A national mentor who will be appointed this year.
