About Matthew Baldwin

Dr. Baldwin attends on the Critical Care Services at The New York Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia. His research is focused on measuring frailty and body composition in elderly survivors of critical illness in order to identify and risk-stratify these patients for preventative, therapeutic, rehabilitative, and palliative interventions that seek to improve critical illness survivorship. Dr. Baldwin also collaborates with Dr. Lederer to study body composition and lung transplantation outcomes.
