Rasheeda Hall, MD, MBA, MHS, assistant professor of medicine (Nephrology), is drawn to complexity. When she was a resident at Duke, she says, “I felt a heart tug to nephrology because these patients were sicker and more complex patients.”
Today, after completing a fellowship in Nephrology at Duke, she is a geriatric nephrologist, with the goal of making life simpler and better for these patients. She is using tools from geriatrics and pharmacology in her quest to improve quality of life and address patient goals of care. Dr. Hall hopes some of her work eventually will help inform geriatric nephrology on a larger scale.
