For research, her interests include dementia, the Latino population, health literacy, and patient self-management of chronic diseases. Dr. Ross is a member of the American Geriatric Society (AGS), American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine (AAHPM), and American Medical Directors Association (AMDA). She belongs to the Texas Geriatrics Society, Texas Medical Directors Association (TGS/TMDA), and American Osteopathic Association (AOA).
