Associate Professor in the Brookdale Department of Geriatrics and Palliative Medicine, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and the James J. Peters Veterans Affairs Medical Center, New York, NY

Dr. Kelley is Associate Professor in the Brookdale Department of Geriatrics and Palliative Medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and the James J. Peters Veterans Affairs Medical Center in New York. Dr. Kelley’s research bridges the intersection between geriatrics and palliative medicine by focusing on the needs of seriously ill older adults and their families.  She is particularly interested in regional practice variations and the relationship between patients’ social, functional, and medical characteristics and treatment intensity.  She is currently pursuing research that will help to prospectively identify those older adults who are at greatest risk for high healthcare costs and may have unmet palliative care needs.

Dr. Kelley has received numerous awards for her work including the 2013 American Geriatrics Society Outstanding Junior Investigator of the Year and 2015 American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine Inspiring Hospice and Palliative Medicine Leaders under 40.  She is currently a recipient of the Paul B. Beeson Career Development Award, funded by the National Institute on Aging and the American Federation of Aging Research. In addition, she directs Geritalk, a communication skills training course for providers caring for older adults with serious illness and is an active clinician who cares for healthy older adults and those with serious illness.
