Dr. Laura Mosqueda is a professor of Family Medicine and Geriatrics at the Keck School of Medicine at USC. She is a widely respected authority on geriatric and family medicine, elder abuse, and care of the elderly and underserved.
“I’ve always had a real affinity for older adults, even as a little kid,” Laura says. “Part of it, I’m sure, is because I had wonderful grandparents.”
“I still remember vividly in my practice the time a patient’s husband kept saying, ‘Well, she should do this and she's just not trying hard enough.’ I couldn't get through to him that she was trying and finally I said, ‘All right, I want you to stand on this table and flap your arms as hard as you can and fly.' He said I can't do that, and I said, 'No, I just want you to try and if you tried harder, I'm sure you could do it.’ We made it a little bit lighthearted, but I said, ‘That's what it's like, she really can't remember',” Laura explains.
