Dr. Franzosa is a Research Health Science Specialist in the Geriatric Research, Education and Clinical Center (GRECC) at the James J. Peters VA Medical Center in the Bronx, NY, an Assistant Professor in the Brookdale Department of Geriatrics and Palliative Medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and a Senior Research Fellow at The New Jewish Home Research Institute on Aging. Her research focuses on developing collaborative interventions to support home care workers and more effectively integrate them into older Veterans' care teams. This work aims to leverage the expertise of the workers who perform vital day-to-day care but are often marginalized and excluded from decision-making around patient care and operational policy. Dr. Franzosa has led a number of studies exploring home care workers' contributions to quality care and the unique emotional demands of this work. She is a 2022-2023 Health and Aging Policy Fellow with the Senate Special Committee on Aging and received her DrPH from the City University of New York Graduate Center/CUNY Graduate School of Public Health and Health Policy.
