Dr. McCullough works with a variety of groups to better understand and improve elder care and health care delivery.
RightCare Alliance> The RightCare Alliance is a network of clinicians, patients, and community leaders who work together to reduce overuse, underuse, and misuse of medical tests and treatments in the health care delivery system, and to restore the clinician-patient relationship.
Upper Valley Community Nursing Project> Focusing on the health of older individuals, the UVCNP is based on a philosophy of nursing that dates back to the mid 19th century when nurses focused on the health of individuals, families, and groups within a specific community. The overarching goal of the UVCNP is to add a health professional to the informal network of volunteers already providing care for elders in an effort to keep elders independent at home, or to facilitate the placement of a nurse in a community where they can bes address non-acute needs of elders at home.
Dartmouth Centers for Health and Aging> The Dartmouth Centers for Health and Aging at the Geisel School of Medicine (formerly the Center for Aging), housed in the Department of Community and Family Medicine, was established in 1992 with the receipt of the Herman O. West Endowment and the allocation of Program Development Funds (PDF) from the Office of the Dean. The Dartmouth Centers for Health and Aging represents, in part, a successful "spin off" of the Dartmouth COOP Network's research and demonstration projects. It aims to improve the quality of life for northern New England's more than 350,000 elderly, by fostering research, education and interdisciplinary collaboration.
