Adria NavarroAbout Adria E. Navarro, PhD, LCSW:

Dr. Navarro serves as Assistant Professor of Clinical Family Medicine at USC’s Keck School of Medicine. The department is chaired by Dr. Laura Mosqueda and houses the National Center on Elder Abuse.

Having worked 17 years with Huntington Hospital’s Senior Care Network, Navarro went on to obtain her PhD in Gerontology from USC’s Leonard Davis School of Gerontology in 2011. She is now a researcher and clinical provider with an interprofessional team that provides comprehensive assessments for older adults. The service focuses on individuals with symptoms of cognitive impairment and multiple health conditions. This “Cadillac” service (as she likes to call it) started just a year ago and Dr. Navarro feels it can be a valuable support in our work.
