Liz Goldberg, MD, ScM is a practicing emergency medicine physician and an NIH-funded researcher on fall prevention. She is passionate about improving the care of older adults who seek acute care. Her GAPcare (The Geriatric Acute and Post-Acute Fall Prevention Intervention) study brings together health professionals – physical therapists, pharmacists, physicians, and nurses – to work together to prevent recurrent falls in older adults who present to the emergency department. Her newest research, GAPcare II, leverages sensors in the Apple Watch to obtain at-home measures of gait and function in older adults.
