  • I am a cardiovascular researcher with a primary focus on prevention. My work has been centered on development and implementation of behavioral patterns that reduce risk of stroke and heart attack. I am also interested in research on the influence of genes on common illnesses, such as hypertension and obesity.


    Education
    • University of Arkansas College of Medicine, M.D.                
    • University of Pennsylvania, Bachelors           
    • Medical School: University of Arkansas College of Medicine
    • Residency: Montefiore Medical Center, Internal Medicine: General
    • Fellowship: Montefiore Medical Center, Cardiology

    What prompted you to pursue your field?

    I trained in clinical cardiology but recognized that the real opportunity to make an impact came from prevention, so I continued for additional training in epidemiology, nutrition, and prevention. That directed me further into the areas of population health and research and broadened my perspective on disease causation and the underlying science of epidemiology. I also was focused, since early in my career, on racial/ethnic and socioeconomic inequities.
