Niagara Native Wins
National Award
MADISON, Wis. -Dr. Amy Kind, associate professor of medicine-geri- atrics at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine & Public Health, is the American Geriatrics Society’s 2019 recipient of the AGS Thomas and Catherine Yoshikawa Award for Outstanding Scientific Achievement for Clinical Investigation.
This award is given to an investigator who is involved in patient care and clinical research addressing the unique health care needs of older adults.
“This would not be possible without the support of my division, depart- ment and school,” Kind said. “Science is a team sport, and I’ve been fortu- nate to have had great pillars of sup- port throughout my career here at Wisconsin.”
The Niagara native and 1992 gradu- ate of Niagara High School received her medical degree and PhD from UW-Madison. She is the daughter of Arne Haavisto and the late Mary Beth Haavisto.
Kind is a national leader looking at socioeconomic health disparities at the neighborhood level. Her first-of-its kind interactive neighborhood map debuted last summer, providing zip- code level details that could help assess health disparities and effective inter- ventions across the country. The work was published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
Kind’s research program focuses on assessing and improving care for older, vulnerable or disadvantaged adults, especially those with Alzheimer’s dis- ease or other forms of dementia.
Kind also is the director of the health services and care research program in the department of medicine at the UW School of Medicine and Public Health.
