Dr. Ensrud is a general internist and epidemiologist with research focus in osteoporosis, women's health, and aging with several publications evaluating novel risk factors for fractures, falls, disability and mortality in older adults. She has 30 years of experience in the design, conduct and analysis of long-term prospective cohort studies and randomized trials sponsored by the National Institutes of Health. She has published over 550 peer-reviewed manuscripts, many focused on the identification of skeletal and non-skeletal risk factors for fracture and the evaluation of simple vs. complex risk assessment models for prediction of adverse health outcomes in older adults. She is responsible for merging several comprehensive NIA-funded longitudinal cohort data sets with Medicare claims data and has taken advantage of these linkages to quantify the impact of unique patient characteristics including physical frailty, self-reported functional limitations, and cognitive impairment on health care cost and utilization outcomes in aged populations.
