“My grandmother’s hip fracture and the resulting post-care impact on her health inspired me to pursue a career in geriatrics, particularly in preventing falls,” said Dr. Ali. “I am joining HSL because the organization is leading the way in reshaping care delivery for seniors and I know I can make a difference here in the field of aging.”
