Dr. May Nguyen Awarded University of California at San Francisco Scholarship
Dr. May Nguyen was recently selected as one of 8 awardees for the UCSF Geriatrics Scholarship Award. The eight interns and residents selected come from programs at UC Irvine, UCLA, UCLA Olive View, Emory, Stanford, University of Colorado, University of Rochester and BU.
May was selected based on her COPC project, which involved working with multicultural elders in a local adult day health program. She demonstrated a remarkable disparity in the elders’ familiarity and experience with advance care planning based on their cultural and language backgrounds.
May will be flown to San Francisco for the summit. She will meet the other awardees and UCSF faculty and give a presentation of her project. She will also receive a $500 award.
