Hillman Alumnus Rebecca (Pisano) Trotta (Penn/Hillman ’98) received a major –and highly competitive – Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) grant for her project, “Developing Geriatric Resource Nurse-Led Inter-professional Collaborative Practice”. This project will develop nurses’ clinical geriatrics expertise and their capacity to lead inter-professional teams around the care of geriatric patients. Not only will this program reduce variations in care of older adults, it will also advance overall patient and family care for this population.

Please join us as we congratulate Rebecca Trotta on her exemplary work.
