John A. Hartford Foundation Grant

In 1998, the Section of Geriatrics at Boston University School of Medicine became a Center of Excellence in Geriatrics (COE) funded by the John A. Hartford Foundation. The purpose of this yearlong faculty development program is to attract additional outstanding physicians to careers as geriatrically oriented faculty, whatever their disciplines.
