I am a cardiologist and also hold a doctorate in Applied and Exercise Physiology, board-certification in Clinical Lipidology, post-doctoral training in preventive cardiology, and expertise in cardiovascular care of patients living with HIV and Women's Heart Health. In 2006 I founded the Roosevelt and St. Luke's Hospital Cardiovascular Disease Prevention Program & Lipid Clinic as well as the Pre-Exercise Heart Screening Program and had been the director for both for the past ten years. In 2008 I developed the cardiolgoy section in the hospital's very large HIV clinic and expanded this to sessions in all outpatient HIV clinics along with research and educational initiatives. Prior to this position, I was a Medical Officer at NIH (NHLBI, Division of Epidemiology and Clinical Applications).
I am interested in a position where I can be a productive and contributing member of a team working in the areas mentioned above. I enjoy teaching and have mentored many medical trainees. Research and educational activities would be welcome in addition to clinical duties.
