Gift enables Brown to establish healthy aging initiative
Date:1/8/2013

after decades of philanthropy. The share allocated to Brown is the only one awarded to an institution located outside of New York City. Other beneficiaries include Weill Cornell Medical College, the American Federation for Aging Research, and Columbia University.

The gift recognizes Brown's leadership in aging research and teaching. The co-directors of the Brown initiative, Wetle and Dr. Richard Besdine, are nationally known aging researchers who have served in prominent posts in the field. Wetle is a former deputy director of the National Institute on Aging, and Besdine is former first chief medical officer at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

911 pilot program

Brown and the Rhode Island Department of Health are already moving forward on the first pilot project of the initiative, even before receiving income from the Diamond gift, Wetle said.

The project will focus on the hundreds of older people around the state who are frequent users of 911 and emergency departments, having made at least four such costly and harrowing trips in a year. The initiative will work with the Rhode Island Department of Health and community health centers to identify strategies for improving health and reducing expensive emergency room visits and hospitalizations.

A graduate student will be assigned to work with Department of Health staff members on the project.

As the income from the gift arrives, Wetle said, Brown will begin other such projects. Medical students, for example, will be funded to work with health care providers such as primary care physicians on implementing some of the preventive health ideas with patients.

"That's our 'collaboratory' model," Wetle said. "Identifying a public health problem for older people, identifying where we might do an effective and efficient intervention that involves preventive services, and promoting health overall. And there's a strong educational component."
