    Associate Dean of Primary Care.

    An accomplished physician and researcher, Dr. Mosqueda is a national and

    and has been invited to the White House several times to discuss elder justice
    initiatives. She has taken the lead on landmark studies to identify forensic markers of
    abuse and neglect. Mosqueda created the nation’s first Elder Abuse Forensic Center in
    2006, a model that has been replicated across the United States. She works with
    community partners to implement changes that cross medical, social, mental health
    and criminal justice systems. She is the director of the National Center on Elder Abuse,
    a $2.95 million federally-funded initiative which focuses on information regarding
    policy, research, training, and resources related to the neglect and exploitation of
    older adults for policymakers, professionals, and the public.

    contributed numerous publications to peer-reviewed journals and served as co-editor
    on four books about geriatric medicine.

    In addition to Dr. Mosqueda’s leadership in clinical care and research, she has been
    actively involved in medical education. She has mentored medical students, graduate
    students, residents and clinical fellows. Graduating students awarded her the Gold
    Humanism in Medicine Award in 2009. At UC Irvine she was the principal investigator
    of a $2 million grant from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation which led to innovative
    and sustained curricular changes in geriatric education. At the Keck School of
    Medicine, she was the principal investigator of a $2.5 million federally funded grant on
    geriatric workforce enhancement across multiple disciplines. She has particular
    interest in care of vulnerable and underserved populations and precepts
