Dr. Taub is the Project Director for a HRSA funded extension of the NYU College of Nursing Faculty Practice called ElderCare which will provide primary health care to those living in lower Manhattan in a naturally occurring retirement community and in Senior Centers in close proximity to the NYU College of Nursing. Additionally, a component of this project includes a house calls program for homebound frail elders. This program will provide service learning opportunities for undergraduate Community Health students and graduate Nurse Practitioner students, who will provide care to a projected 70 million older adults by 2030.
