Bridget Graney, MD
Dr. Bridget Graney is an Instructor in the Division of Pulmonary Sciences and Critical Care Medicine at the University of Colorado. She earned her medical degree at the University of Nebraska followed by residency training and chief resident year in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics at Indiana University. She subsequently completed fellowship training at the University of Colorado where she has stayed on as faculty following the completion of an additional year of research training. During her fellowship and research training, Dr. Graney has worked under the mentorship of Drs. Jeffrey J. Swigris, David Bekelman and Joyce S. Lee. Her current research focuses on the dynamic interrelationship between patients with interstitial lung disease and their caregivers. Recognizing that none of us exist in isolation, Dr. Graney seeks to understand the impact of disease on caregivers of patients with ILD, specifically the degree of caregiver burden experienced that is frequently unrecognized but has negative health consequences for caregivers. Her long term goal is to improve outcomes, specifically quality of life, for both patients and caregivers by focusing on interventions for patient-caregiver dyads (pairs).
