(YorkPedia Editorial):- New York City, New York Feb 7, 2022 (Issuewire.com) – A committed internist, Dr. Houlberg joined Howard Brown Health Center (HBHC) in 2008 as its Director of Geriatric Medicine and became Chief Clinical Officer in 2011. Her medical practice focus includes LGBTQ aging, HIV medicine, health promotion, and interdisciplinary medical care for populations at risk.
The doctor has been the driving force behind the expansion of HBHC’s medical and social services for older LGBTQ adults, especially those aging with HIV. In particular, she has served as a medical provider and core staff member for the Chicago Elder Services Community Initiative, a collaborative project between Howard Brown Health Center, Rush University Medical Center, CJE-Senior Life, Heartland Alliance, and Midwest Palliative & Hospice Care Center.
As part of an interdisciplinary team, Dr. Houlberg provides medical care to LGBTQ older adults, training to local health care and social service providers to improve their competencies in working with LGBTQ seniors, and where appropriate, in-home care.
With a broad educational background, she graduated from Antioch College with a major in Biology. She earned her medical degree from Rush University Medical College in 2004 and went on to complete her residency in internal medicine and her fellowship in geriatric medicine at the same educational venue.
Licensed to practice medicine in Illinois, the doctor is board-certified in internal medicine and geriatric medicine by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM). The ABIM is a physician-led, non-profit, independent evaluation organization driven by doctors who want to achieve higher standards for better care in a rapidly changing world.
Internal medicine is the medical specialty dealing with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of adult diseases. Physicians specializing in internal medicine are called internists. They manage and prevent common and complex diseases by providing comprehensive care and promoting overall well-being.
On a more personal note, Dr. Houlberg is fluent in both English and Spanish.
