Research Interests

I have a unique background and training in both geriatric team-based care and HIV specialty care and currently practice both disciplines across multiple clinical settings. My research interests are focused on the integration of geriatric principles and tools into more traditional HIV care settings through an implementation science lens. Particular areas of research interest within HIV and aging include polypharmacy, dementia/HIV-associated neurocognitive disorder, and frailty.

Dr. Walker is a geriatrician and HIV specialist with special focus on the care of older adults living with HIV. Other interests include care for transgender older adults, polypharmacy, multimorbidity, and dementia.

Care Philosophy
I seek to help my patients preserve and enhance physical and cognitive function across their lifespan through a combination of preventive care, non-medical interventions, and care coordination. I know that your time outside of the doctor's office is what matters most and strive to ensure that your medical care doesn't interfere with what's most important in your life.
