Caring for an aging America
After working closely with older adults in a variety of nursing positions, Debra Bakerjian knows well the statistics that point to an urgent need for more geriatric specialists to serve America’s rapidly growing aging population.
The need is significant. More than 81 million Americans over age 20 have one or more types of cardiovascular disease such as high blood pressure, coronary heart disease or congestive heart failure. Peripheral vascular disease is estimated to affect up to 10 million Americans. UC Davis Health System is improving cardiovascular health through state-of-the-art patient care, cutting-edge research, education and outreach.
