Research: Dr. Miner is an internist who completed subspecialty training in geriatric medicine, sleep medicine, as well as a postdoctoral research fellowship in clinical epidemiology and aging-related research. She is interested in symptom management in older adults, and whether a model that takes into account a broad array of impairments is more predictive of symptoms than the traditional disease model, where symptoms are thought to arise from specific diseases. Dr. Miner’s prior work focused on the symptom of dyspnea. Her current research examines insomnia symptoms, describing how these symptoms change over time as well as important factors in different domains that increase risk for insomnia in older adults.
