Poster Earns APRN Conference Award

Susan Storck, APRN (right), and Brenda Renzulli, APRN, from our Center for Geriatrics, received the “Excellence in Poster Presentation” award at the Connecticut APRN conference in Southbury, April 26. Their poster, “Avoiding Hospital Admissions in the Geriatric Population,” focused on APRN roles in identifying risks associated with acute care admission for geriatric patients and how GEMS (Geriatric Emergency Medicine Service) and HV (Home-visit) programs together provide a patient-centered approach to providing the best option for patients and their families.
