Thursday, July 9, 2015
Krupa Shah, M.D., M.P.H., geriatric hospitalist at Highland Hospital, has been named an American Geriatrics Society (AGS) Fellow by the American Geriatrics Society’s Board of Directors.
Dr. Shah is one of only a handful of AGS fellows in the Rochester area. Fellowship status is awarded to AGS members who have demonstrated a professional commitment to geriatrics, contributed to the progress of geriatric care and are active participants in the Society.
A resident of Penfield, Dr. Shah routinely presents her research to the American Geriatrics Society. She is a member of the society's Public Education Committee and Research Subcommittee. She also received the Division of Geriatrics and Aging's research award in 2014 from the University of Rochester and is a two time recipient of the Center for AIDS Research Early Career Investigator Award.
“Dr. Shah is a rising star in the field of geriatric research,” said Robert McCann, M.D., M.A.C.P., Chief of Medicine for Highland Hospital. “Her attainment of Fellowship in the American Geriatrics Society is an affirmation of her success.”
Receiving this honor puts Dr. Shah in a specially recognized group of healthcare providers who are dedicated to geriatrics, education, clinical care and research. Fellows who attain this honor are distinguished among their colleagues and in their communities for their service to geriatrics.
