Cynthia J. Brown, M.D., MSPH, an associate professor in the Division of Gerontology, Geriatrics and Palliative Care at the UAB School of Medicine, is the 2013 recipient of the Outstanding Scientific Achievement for Clinical Investigation Award from the American Geriatrics Society.
The Outstanding Scientific Achievement for Clinical Investigation Award was established to recognize outstanding achievement in clinical research addressing health care problems of older adults by an investigator who is actively involved in direct patient care.
Brown’s clinical interests center on mobility-related issues; her current research focuses on low mobility and falls in hospitalized older patients.
Brown will accept the award during the 2013 AGS Annual Meeting this spring.
