Karen Lappas, GNP-BC
Having completed the nurse practitioner program at New York State University with a sub-specialty in geriatrics, Karen chooses to work with seniors because she enjoys learning from them. Their many experiences and knowledge inspires her, just like her grandmother inspired her during her childhood, which is what ultimately led her to a career in senior care. She has worked with older adults for most of her career in various settings.
Her specialized interests include palliative care, behavioral health, and wound care. Karen loves PACE because she knows older adults thrive while staying in their homes, thanks to the PACE model of care using the team approach. What she enjoys most about her job is developing a plan of care for participants with the whole health care team.
Fun Fact: She loves learning new things with her son, like speaking Mandarin.
