2024 Recipient: Elizabeth Margaret Ann Kelly

Elizabeth Margaret Ann Kelly is the 2024 Clinician Student Research Award recipient for her submission, “Early Dementia Care Through the Patient Portal”. By analyzing medical advice portal messages of patients aged 65 or older in the first 12 months after a dementia diagnosis sent from patients or caregivers to PCPs or dementia specialists, Elizabeth found that understanding common topics addressed through this medium can inform technology- and portal-based strategies to improve dementia education and care while reducing clinician burden. A second-year medical student at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, Ms. Kelly’s dedication, creativity, and research acumen position her as an emerging leader in aging research and clinical care as her career progresses.
