The goal of the Plein Student Scholarship is to foster student interest in geriatrics-related research.  Research areas may include but are not limited to, translational research projects that move evidence-based, aging research along the continuum from laboratory findings to treatment of disease and maintenance of health and well-being of community-living older adults. We are grateful to Joy, ’51, ’56, and Elmer Plein for their support of student geriatric pharmacy research excellence through the Plein student scholar program.

“Our students are working closely with faculty and preceptors to engage in patient-centered and impactful scholarship on a wide range of topics important to the health of older adults, including osteoporosis, transitions of care, falls, marijuana use, and medication safety. We are so proud of their creativity and enthusiasm they bring to the care of older adults!”—Zach Marcum, Bailey Faculty Fellow and Plein Center Assistant Director of Research
