Nicole Mushero



I am a geriatrician who practices primarily in the outpatient setting, including in the skilled nursing facility setting. In addition to being a clinician, I have a passion for education at all levels. My teaching includes focus on dysphagia in older adults and SDOH. More recently I have focused my energy on work around incarcerated older adults, including work on medical parole and decarceration.
