Abraham A. Brody, Ph.D., R.N., G.N.P.-B.C., F.A.A.N. is an Associate Professor and Associate Director of the Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing at the NYU College of Nursing and researcher at the Bronx VA GRECC. He is a board certified geriatric nurse practitioner with clinical expertise and current practice in house calls and inpatient geriatric consult services. He completed his Ph.D. at the University of California, San Francisco, where he was a John A Hartford BAGNC Scholar, and a post-doctoral fellowship at the Sutter Health Institute for Research and Education. Dr. Brody’s research and scholarship activities focus on the intersection of geriatrics and palliative care as he seeks to improve the quality of life, quality of care, and patient outcomes for older adults living in the community. He is currently focused on “geriatricizing” home health, where over two-thirds of patients are over the age of 65 yet little focus has been spent on ensuring gerocompetency. Dr. Brody currently teaches geriatric content in the undergraduate and Ph.D. programs at NYU, and in the interprofessional New York Geriatric Education Centers and VA Palliative Care Fellowship programs. He has served on multiple study sections and is actively engaged as in multiple geriatric and palliative care professional organizations.
