Too few geriatricians for an aging United States

NPR, August 7, 2008
As millions of Americans head into old age, the number of geriatricians is in decline, according to this report from National Public Radio. The current system doesn't value cognitive-based care that focuses on prevention, so geriatricians are some of the lowest paid physicians, according to the report. The result is the number of geriatricians has dropped 22% from eight years ago.
