Dr. Callahan’s research seeks to improve the outcomes of care for older adults with late life depression and dementia. His work explores innovative models of care that support the generalist physician in their day-to-day provision of health care for older adults.

These new models of care focus on collaboration between health care providers, patients, and family as well as across the continuum of care with an emphasis on the application of information technology.

“We, both clinicians and patients – can do a better job of preventing harm and maintaining the brain as it ages.”
