    What prompted you to pursue your field?

    After completing my fellowship in Nephrology, I took a course in Epidemiology and I felt a moment of awakening. All of my medical training had focused on patients and the pathophysiologic basis of disease. Epidemiology showed me how disease starts with social processes and behaviors that are layered on top of genetic predisposition to disease. After learning the concepts of epidemiology, I felt for the first time I was no longer staring at a leaf, but instead looking at an entire forest, filled with leaves. In other words, I saw a much bigger and more in-depth picture of how disease starts and progresses and where interventions are needed to stop disease processes.

    What does your department's focus mean to you?

    My passion for the intersection of epidemiology with clinical care has been applied to my own delivery of clinical care as a nephrologist, and also to teaching medical and public health students, residents, and fellows.
