Dr. Lori Arney, D.O. with LIFE PACE
Thursday, May 20 at 10 a.m. (Live via Zoom)

Meet the newest member of the LIFE PACE medical staff and learn about the Inter-Disciplinary Team (IDT) approach to healthcare. IDT's are particularly appropriate for geriatric patients who typically have complex, chronic health conditions. The IDT incorporates several disciplines to coordinate assessment and treatment. They have been proven to offer more personalized holistic care, resulting in better health outcomes and helping patients stay independent longer.
