Academic Interests

As an internist trained in geriatric medicine, Dr. Williams' primary clinical focus is improving the quality of care for elders across the continuum of life. During her geriatric fellowship, she quickly gained an understanding of achieving this goal through integration of inpatient/outpatient consultative care, curriculum development in geriatric education and community/caregiver/medical-peer education.
