* Why elderly care is so important for me:
"I am working the last 15 years in a greek public hospital with a rehabilitation clinic, consequently a large number of my patients are older adults. Moreover my PhD theme was on malnutrition in hip fracture patients consequently I always considered myself a dietitian with a special interest on older adults."
