Dr. Robert E. Roush – Investor Protection Institute

Home / About Us / Dr. Robert E. Roush
Dr. Robert E. Roush Dr. Robert E. Roush A native of Baytown, Texas, Bob earned an Associate of Arts degree from Lee College in his hometown, then took his baccalaureate and master's degrees from Sam Houston State University in physical education and biology. Following two years as a secondary school physical education teacher, he earned a doctorate in education at the University of Houston. In 1969, he was one of 20 persons named as an Office of Education Fellow, spending the next year in Washington, D.C., as a special assistant to the then-Assistant Secretary of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare and U.S. Commissioner of Education. From his position in Washington, Dr. Roush was awarded a U.S. Regional Medical Program Fellowship at the University of Southern California School of Medicine in Los Angeles. Upon completion of his second post-doctoral fellowship in 1971, he was recruited to Baylor College of Medicine as the founding director of the Center for Allied Health Professions. In 1979, Dr. Roush earned a master of public health degree from the University of Texas School of Public Health. Since 1985, he has directed the Texas Consortium Geriatrics Education Center, a statewide organization that has trained over 75,000 Texas health professionals in geriatrics. As Professor, Section of Geriatrics, Department of Medicine, Bob teaches medical students, residents, and geriatrics fellows. He also conducts continuing education programs for the Section of Geriatrics and edits the Baylor's Huffington Center on Aging's web pages. Dr. Roush has written over 500 peer-reviewed publications, invited presentations given at national and international meetings and has funded grant applications totaling over $21,000,000. As president of the National Association of Geriatrics Education Centers from 1997-2000, Bob testified before the U.S. Senate and regularly educated our public officials on the need for additional training in geriatrics for all health care professionals. From 2000 to 2002, he served as the 45th President of Delta Tau Delta Fraternity. In 2002, he was appointed co-chair of NAGEC's Bioterrorism and Emergency Preparedness Committee, a position that led to his work with the Canadian Division of Aging and Seniors on the International Geriatric Emergency Preparedness and Response Work Group. He is a past chair of the Humanities and Arts Committee of the Gerontological Society of America. And at the 2011 GSA meeting, he was elected again to lead NAGEC and The National Association for Geriatric Education. He presently serves on the board of Holly Hall Retirement Center in Houston. Now in his 45th year at Baylor, his principal work, in conjunction with the Investor Protection Trust since 2009, has been in the area of training health care professionals about the role of age-related changes in making executive decisions about one's finances and how mild cognitive impairment makes some elders highly vulnerable to financial fraud and exploitation. Dr. Roush and his wife of 50 years, Carole, have two children and two grandchildren. When not doting on their grandchildren, they enjoy their daily walks and weight-training sessions, are avid readers and travelers, and Bob plays golf when he can.
