Research Grand Rounds: Urinary Incontinence: a Symptom, a Disease, and a Geriatric Syndrome — October 11, 2019

Research Grand Rounds

Research Grand Rounds are sponsored by MedStar Health Research Institute and Georgetown-Howard Universities Center for Clinical and Translational Science (GHUCCTS) and bring together the MedStar Health community for a learning experience focusing on a different topic each month.

On behalf of the Georgetown-Howard Universities Center for Clinical and Translational Science, and MedStar Health Research Institute, you are invited to Clinical and Translational Research Grand Rounds on Friday, October 11, 2019 from 12:00 Noon pm to 1:00pm. The speaker will be Tatiana V.D. Sanses, MD. The Talk is titled, “Urinary Incontinence: a symptom, a disease, and a geriatric syndrome”.

Dr. Tatiana Sanses is Associate Professor and chief of the Division of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, Urogynecology, at Howard University. She was recruited to Howard from the University of Maryland in 2017, where she had held a faculty appointment and launched her independently-funded research following completion of her clinical training at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, then at Greater Baltimore Medical Center/University of Maryland Medical Center.

Her research, which exemplifies our discipline-spanning interest in novel approaches to understudied disorders with protean manifestations, has focused importantly on urinary incontinence and on pelvic organ prolapse, particularly their intersection with functional and symptomatic outcomes. Her ongoing National Institute on Aging-supported research seeks to elucidate common mechanisms linking urinary incontinence and mobility limitation in older women to develop novel rehabilitation strategies and improve quality of life. Please join us for her research presentation, entitled “Urinary Incontinence: a symptom, a disease, and a geriatric syndrome”
