Dr. Jennifer Carnahan’s research focuses on improving care for older adults in nursing homes, most recently focusing on transitions of care from the skilled nursing facility (SNF) setting to home for patients with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. This research interest has evolved from her medical training as a geriatrician.

Dr. Carnahan completed a two-year research fellowship at the Center for Aging Research and then joined the faculty in 2016.

“We need to evaluate each patient’s home environment to improve transitions of care.”
