About the Presenters Nancy Morioka-Douglas, MD, MPH Nancy Morioka-Douglas is currently a Clinical Professor at the Stanford University School of Medicine, Co-director of the Stanford Geriatric Education Center, and Clinic Chief at Stanford Family Medicine, the faculty practice for the Center for Education and Research in Family and Community Medicine. As a family physician, she applies her specialty’s unique perspective to clinical applications of population health across the generations from school based interventions to ethnogeriatics. Her current academic focus is on chronic illness, providing outreach to underserved communities, and implementing best practices in clinical settings. As chronic illness disproportionately affects ethnic elders as well as the neediest members of our society, this has proven to be a very appropriate catalyst for Dr. Morioka-Douglas’ work.
