Join us September 29th, 9 a.m. - 10 a.m., for a discussion with Dr. Mikhail Kogan, a leader in the newly established field of Integrative Geriatrics. 
 
Too often, care for older adults relies on prescription medications and invasive interventions.  Dr. Kogan will discuss effective non-traditional pharmacological, integrative, holistic approaches to managing illness and promoting wellness.  Dr. Kogan is an Associate Professor at The George Washington University and serves as Associate Director of the GWU Geriatrics Fellowship program.  He is the editor of the first definitive textbook in the field of Integrative Geriatric Medicine and is the founder and Executive Director of AIM Health Institute, a non-profit organization in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area which provides integrative medicine services to low-income and terminally ill patients regardless of their ability to pay. Dr. Kogan is a frequent speaker at national and international conferences on topics ranging from Integrative Medicine and Geriatrics to healthy aging, neurodegenerative diseases and the use of medical cannabis.
 
The program is co-sponsored with the Positive Aging Community.
