Outstanding Junior Research Manuscript Award

Victoria L. Tang, MD, MAS

The AGS Outstanding Junior Research Manuscript Award is presented to a junior investigator for an outstanding peer-reviewed article on geriatrics. Victoria Tang, MD, MAS, has been honored this year for her work on “Functional Status and Survival After Breast Cancer Surgery in Nursing Home Residents,” published in JAMA Surgery. Dr. Tang’s study assessed overall survival and functional status after breast cancer surgery in female nursing home residents stratified by surgery type. Her team’s conclusions indicate that one-year survivors had significant functional decline. Now the subject of high-profile news coverage by USA Today, the New York Times, and several other outlets, Dr. Tang’s study sparked a larger conversation about the surgical decision-making process. Dr. Tang is an Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of Geriatrics at the University of California, San Francisco.
