Geoffrey Hoffman, PhD, MPH is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Systems, Populations and Leadership in the School of Nursing at the University of Michigan. Dr. Hoffman’s research focuses on quality of care for older adults, falls, informal and formal caregiving, and cognitive impairment. His work on falls assesses how different research methodologies impact fall prevalence and Medicare expenditure estimates and how caregiving reduces fall risk among disabled and cognitively impaired older adults. His caregiving work explores dyadic interdependencies between caregivers and their care recipients, and burdens and health trajectories of dementia caregivers. Dr. Hoffman also serves on IHPI’s Early Career Faculty Advisory Council (FAC).
Co-sponsored with Penn Nursing.
