    Wendee Gozansky, MD, MPH, is a Senior Clinician Investigator at the Institute for Health Research. Since joining the IHR, Dr. Gozansky has studied collaborative care models for depression management and worked to improve health and healthcare for older adults, in both the community and care delivery setting. Her research focuses on bone health and fracture prevention with an intent to optimize the use of bone mineral density testing to prevent falls and improve adherence to drug therapy for osteoporosis. Additionally, Dr. Gozansky continues to collaborate on studies that seek to improve access to palliative care for ethnic minorities and frail older adults.

    Dr. Gozansky graduted from Smith College as a Women's Studies major, received medical and public health degrees from Tufts University School of Medicine, and completed postdoctoral training at the University of Colorado. As a board-certified internist and geriatrician, Dr. Gozansky practices in CPMG's Skilled Nursing Facility Rehabilitation Service.

    Dr. Gozansky is also the Vice President and Chief Quality Officer for the Colorado Permanente Medical Group (CPMG). She is responsible for the quality improvement and oversight activities of this 1,200+ multispecialty physician group that delivers care to 650,000+ members in the Kaiser Permanente Colorado (KPCO) region.
