    What prompted you to pursue your field?

    I pursued Global Health and Family Medicine for the population-based approach to improving health outcomes across communities and borders. Whether in prevention and screening, chronic disease management or acute care, I enjoy employing a primary care and public health approach to achieving health equity.

    What's it like to teach at Parkinson?

    The faculty at the Parkinson School are collaborative, creative, and committed to advancing health equity. The multidisciplinary environment provides students the opportunity to learn in teams similar to their future practices as health professionals.
