The Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston is using a $1.8 million federal grant to pay for a program that sends physicians to places like the Ruggles Affordable Assisted Living Community in Roxbury, Mass., where many seniors were formerly homeless. The Harvard Geriatrics Fellowship Program gives the physicians experience working as a part of a multidisciplinary team and an opportunity to learn about geriatric medicine and underserved populations.
