My initial choice was to be a specialist in internal medicine, which is dealing with high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, lung disease, sort of diseases of the internal organs and the general management of them. And as I was doing that training, working with older adults was something that I just enjoyed on a day-to-day basis. As you could guess, older adults are a very diverse group of people. Some of them are very healthy and thinking about how to be healthy for the next decade or two or three decades of their life. And some of them have significant medical problems and they're trying to work through a very complex set of medical issues. Hopefully when my patients leave a visit, for example, they walk out feeling like they had an opportunity to voice their concerns about their own health to somebody who actively listened to what they were talking about and engage in a conversation that was really focused on what their concerns were -so that they felt like it was a visit that was very relevant to themselves and what they want to do. And they feel like we kind of have a plan laid out for moving forward.
