Dr. Cleveland explains a test to Hailey Cleek.

 

Our students got to learn from Drs. Mia Yang and Maryjo Cleveland in the outpatient geriatrics clinic at the Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.  They saw how cognitive testing is done and how patients and their families cope with a diagnosis of dementia.  One student writes, “The clinic observation experience helped me be better prepared to recognize and assist with issues of impaired cognition that affect my own legal clients.  Observing Dr. Cleveland’s expertise firsthand leads me to think making friends with a great geriatrician should be a priority for all estate planning and elder law attorneys!”
