Dr. Bowling is a geriatrician with training in epidemiology and population health science. His research focuses on the health outcomes associated with functional impairment and geriatric conditions among older adults with chronic kidney disease (CKD).  He has published recommendations for the management of CKD that emphasize the need for patient-centered care models that focus on optimizing function and quality of life over traditional disease-based approaches. In addition to research, Dr. Bowling has partnered with VA nephrologists to improve care for older adults with CKD.
