Creating communities to support aging with dignity and purpose

Dr. Scott Kaiser is a practicing geriatrician at the Motion Picture & Television Fund (MPTF), a charitable organization that provides services, support, and assistance to the Hollywood community. As the MPTF’s Chief Innovation Officer, Dr. Kaiser is committed to creating communities that support peoples' ability to live and age well, with dignity and purpose. A passionate advocate for the growing population of older adults, Dr. Kaiser bemoans what he calls “rampant agism within the medical community,” and the “institutional bias” he says he has encountered doing his job. 

In this LLAMA podcast interview with Peter Bowes, Dr. Kaiser explains his unique role, working with members of the entertainment community, and why he is privileged to hear “the best stories" from his patients.
