Nancy Hodgson: PA Long-Term Care Council

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf has appointed Penn Nursing’s Nancy Hodgson, the Anthony Buividas Endowed Term Chair in Gerontology and associate professor of nursing, to his 35-member Long-Term Care Council.

The Council makes recommendations to improve the Commonwealth’s long-term services and support systems with respect to regulations, licensure and financing for appropriate departments and agencies. It affords members the opportunity to directly impact the quality of care provided to older adults and persons living with disabilities. Dr. Hodgson is the co-founder of the Palliative Care Program at the Madlyn and Leonard Abramson Center (formerly the Philadelphia Geriatric Center), one of the first nursing-home based palliative care programs in the nation.
