    Precision Medicine for Older Adults: Delivering on a Promise

    Join the UW School of Pharmacy and the Plein Center for Geriatric Pharmacy for our 2nd Annual Plein Research Symposium on Thursday, March 8, 2018 at 11 a.m. The annual symposium explores new advancements on research topics related to Geriatric Pharmacy and celebrates UW’s legacy as a leader in outreach and research for healthy aging. This year we are happy to welcome UW alum, John Newman, MD, PhD, to share his expertise on delivering precision medicine for older adults.

    Dr. Newman is Assistant Professor in the Division of Geriatrics at UCSF and a Visiting Scientist at the Buck Institute. His Buck research studies the molecular details of how diet and fasting regulate the genes and pathways that in turn control aging. Dr. Newman is also a geriatrician focusing on preserving mobility and preventing delirium. Like many geriatricians, he is deeply interested in how to best target the right treatments and right approach to older adults, using every tool from genetics and biomarkers to functional and social assessment, in order to maximize function and independence. He completed an MD/PhD at the University of Washington, then did his residency and fellowship training at UCSF.

    Dr. Joy Plein is widely recognized as a pioneer for creating the momentum for geriatric pharmacy practice in this state at a time when there were few pharmacists specializing in the care for older adults and few resources to advocate for older patients. She and her late husband, Elmer, developed a visionary nursing home course in 1973, which evolved into developing a formal training program with the establishment of the Plein Certificate in Geriatric Pharmacy. In 2015, Joy was awarded UW School of Pharmacy’s Lifetime Achievement Award for her outstanding achievements in pharmacy.
    In 2016, the Plein Center for Geriatric Pharmacy Research, Education and Outreach was established with the generous support of Joy and Elmer Plein. The Center allows us to build on our 30-year history of comprehensive and state-of the art training in geriatrics and expand our role as leader in outreach and research to promote healthy aging.
