2006 – Dr. Lynn Beattie

Professor Emeritus, Department of Medicine
Division of Geriatric Medicine, UBC


Beattie_Lynn “I have a general interest in clinical geriatrics with a particular interest in dementia care, especially diagnosis and treatment of disorders such as Alzheimer disease. I am interested in furthering understanding around treatment interventions that promote functional capacity and quality of life in persons with dementia including working with families and health service providers. I am the former Director of Clinic for Alzheimer Disease and Related Disorders at UBC Hospital which provides a rich clinical setting for conducting research. As a Co-leader for the BC Network for Aging Research, I see this as having great potential for promoting aging research initiatives in the province and beyond.”MD UBC, 1965
