Lauren J. Gleason’s research in geriatrics focuses on co-management and delirium. Her experience in working with geriatric surgical co-management models convinced her of its effectiveness for frail older adults.

She received the Rochester Academy of Medicine’s Geriatrics Award, as well as the University of Rochester Medical Center’s T. Franklin Williams Award and a Commendation Award from its Division of Geriatrics and Aging. Gleason was selected as a participant in the American Medical Directors Association Foundation’s Futures Program. She is a member of the American Geriatrics Society and served as chair of its Fellows-in-Training Section.
