Coming from three generations of nursing home administrators I’ve spent much of my life around the elderly. Having the opportunity to see levels of care that the elderly need yet are not able access is such an eye opener. Rural healthcare for the elderly is a challenge. As a dual MPH and MPA student I am using the opportunity to study healthcare systems and the business of healthcare as it applies to the elderly. I plan to build a long-term care system that benefits the rural elderly and visualizes long-term care as a continuation of life rather than the end of life.
