Nicholas Mentus, MD, has completed the Alliance for Aging Research Senior Patient & Family Caregiver Network (SP&FCN) Research Advocacy Training. The course helped him to understand some of the unresolved questions and public health significance of diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, atrial fibrillation, chronic pain, and sarcopenia, all of which affect the aging population. This education also clarified the role and importance of patient-centered outcomes research in addressing these unknowns. The course encouraged individuals to engage with PCORI. Mentus is a retired physician with 54 years of exposure to inpatient hospital care, in surgery. His personal disease experience is with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation and ablation. Mentus would like to help solve issues of etiopathogenesis, find ways to prevent it, explore new treatments, and develop noninvasive, continuous, simple, low-cost monitoring. He is also interested in all research related to aging, but in particular sarcopenia.
