Top Chronic Medical Conditions: Dr. Gerda’s Guide to What You Really Need to Know
Updated: Oct 8
As a physician who is a personal patient advocate, and medical navigator, I often encounter people who work with seniors.
I was asked to write an article for the CSA Journal (Certified Senior Advisors) that summarizes the key medical conditions that those working in the senior industry need to know to help their clients.
