Scientist-in-Training Research Award

Andrea E. Daddato, MS

Andrea E. Daddato, MS, a research assistant at the University of Colorado Denver School of Medicine, will receive this year’s Scientist-in-Training Research Award. A gerontology doctoral candidate at the University of Massachusetts Boston, Mrs. Daddato’s dissertation, The Influence of Medicare Insurance Type –Traditional Fee-For-Service v. Medicare Advantage–on Rehospitalizations for Heart Failure Patients in Skilled Nursing Facilities, is an addition to the SNFConnect Study–A Randomized Trial of Heart Failure Disease Management in Skilled Nursing Facilities. Mrs. Daddato has developed a niche research specialty in post-acute care and its intersection with health policy, ranging from explorations of hands-on interactions with older adults to assessments of medical records. Her blend of policy and clinical expertise is a staple of the future for careers across aging.
