The Duke Center for Geriatric Surgery (DCGS) was established by the Department of Surgery to offer a collaborative platform to develop and integrate advances in perioperative care for older adults through clinical innovation, education and research. The Center funds 1-2 grants for researchers annually. After a rigorous peer review selection process, we are pleased to announce that the 2019 DCGS Scholars Award recipients are:
Hadiza Kazaure, MD: “Timing of a DNR Order and Surgical Outcomes of Older Adults”
- Daniel Parker, MD: “A Pilot Study to Investigate the Association of Measures of Biological Age with Outcomes after Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery (CABG)”
Each team will receive $20,000 to be used over 12 months to catalyze investigations of key questions in geriatric surgical outcomes research. Congratulations to all applicants on putting forward strong proposals with the potential to advance health services research.
