BENJAMÍN LEÓN, JR. FAMILY CENTER FOR GERIATRIC RESEARCH AND EDUCATION
“For more than 43 years I have been dedicated to serving the healthcare needs of the Medicare population, most of whom are
over the age of 65 and have always maintained that our society is best judged by how it cares for
its elders. I am wholeheartedly committed to improving the lives of our seniors. This new center
will provide greater opportunities to improve healthcare delivery for the aging population.”
- Benjamin Leon Jr.
Leon Medical Centers is an affiliate of Florida International University’s College of Medicine, which allows FIU medical students to do rotations at Leon Medical Centers.
In addition through a generous gift to The Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine ,the Benjamín León, Jr. Family Center for Geriatric Research and Education and the Leon Medical Centers Eminent Scholars Chair in Geriatrics was created to focus on health issues that affect the culturally-diverse elderly population in South Florida. As the United States population continues to grow older as a whole, the research conducted in this center will gain increased relevance beyond South Florida.
