Research Grand Rounds: Urinary Incontinence: A Symptom, A Disease, and a Geriatric Syndrome

Date Fri, Oct 11
Time 12: 00 PM - 1: 30 PM
Location MedStar Washington Hospital Center
True Auditorium, East Building 1st Floor, 110 Irving St NW, Washington, DC, 20010

Georgetown-Howard Universities Center for Clinical and Translational Science and MedStar Health Research Institute present: Clinical and Translational Research Grand Rounds

“Urinary Incontinence: a symptom, a disease, and a geriatric syndrome”

Speaker: Tatiana V.D. Sanses MD

Dr. Tatiana Sanses is Associate Professor and chief of the Division of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, Urogynecology, at Howard University. She was recruited to Howard from the University of Maryland in 2017, where she had held a faculty appointment and launched her independently-funded research following completion of her clinical training at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, then at Greater Baltimore Medical Center/University of Maryland Medical Center.
Her research, which exemplifies our discipline-spanning interest in novel approaches to understudied disorders with protean manifestations, has focused importantly on urinary incontinence and on pelvic organ prolapse, particularly their intersection with functional and symptomatic outcomes. Her ongoing National Institute on Aging-supported research seeks to elucidate common mechanisms linking urinary incontinence and mobility limitation in older women to develop novel rehabilitation strategies and improve quality of life. Please join us for her research presentation, entitled “Urinary Incontinence: a symptom, a disease, and a geriatric syndrome”

Please note that this month’s talk will be in True Auditorium (East Building, 1st Floor) rather than in the CTEC Auditorium.
