New York (April 7, 2022)—The American Geriatrics Society (AGS) celebrates Sharon A. Brangman, MD, FACP, AGSF as recipient of the 2022 Edward Henderson Award for her research and clinical achievements in geriatrics, particularly for her work in Alzheimer’s disease, hospice and palliative medicine, depression, and end of life care. She will deliver the Society’s Henderson State-of-the-Art Lecture at the AGS 2022 Annual Scientific Meeting (#AGS22) in Orlando on May 12-14 (pre-conference day May 11).
Dr. Brangman is a Distinguished Service Professor and Chair of the Department of Geriatrics at SUNY Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, NY, and Director of the Upstate Center of Excellence for Alzheimer's Disease (CEAD).
“Dr. Brangman has long been a prominent AGS leader. Currently, she is most focused on working toward a future of healthcare that is free of discrimination and bias,” noted AGS President Peter Hollmann, MD, AGSF. “She has helped us understand how destructive structural racism and ageism are, particularly within a health context, and through AGS, she works toward creating strategies our membership can use to counter these biases on behalf of older adults,” he adds.
