Shah Leads Grant Aimed at Enhanced Emergency Care for People with Dementia 
Quarterly Magazine, Volume 22, No. 4 (Page 23)

The article outlines a new $7.5 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) which Dr. Shah will be co-leading with Ula Hwang, MD of Yale School of Medicine. The effort aims to leverage expertise in emergency medicine, geriatrics and Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias to identify gaps in emergency care for people with dementia and address those gaps.

The funds will support Geriatric Emergency Care Applied Research Network 2.0 – Advancing Dementia Care (GEAR 2.0 ADC), which is a collaboration between SMPH, Yale School of Medicine, Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University and Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. All four institutions are home to an NIH-National Institute on Aging-designated Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center.
