I am a clinician educator with board certifications in Internal Medicine, Cardiology and Echocardiography. My primary clinical interest is the treatment of older adults with cardiovascular disease. This inspired me to lead an interdepartmental effort to create the Geriatric Cardiology Program at Wake Forest.
Our mission is to provide high quality multidisciplinary care to the geriatric patient with cardiovascular disease, and especially to those with overlapping geriatric syndromes and complex medical conditions. Our aim is to provide personalized care that is aligned with the patient's values and focuses in preserving their health and independence. Another aim of this program is to continue to build on the long and prolific trajectory that Wake Forest has had in aging research by strengthening interdepartmental collaboration.
In addition to my passion for caring for older adults, I am committed to medical education. I serve as faculty liaison for Cardiology to the Internal Medicine Residency Program and as Clerkship Director to the Physician Assistant Program. My dedication in this area has been recognized with awards for excellence in education.
