72 E. Concord Street


I am a geriatrician with experience in the outpatient ambulatory, SNF and inpatient settings. I am a passionate educator and teach medical students, residents and fellows and have extensive experience developing curricula. Most recently, I am the recipient of a Geriatric Academic Career Award (GACA) which protects much of my time to work around incarcerated older adults, a growing, and particularly vulnerable group of older adults. My goal is improve care for this population through educational interventions both within and outside carceral institutions. Additionally, my work focuses on medical parole and decarceration.
