"Patients & Populations" Yr 2 Co-director


I spent nearly a decade at Dartmouth prior to returning as faculty in 2018. I did my residency in Family Medicine at Kaiser Permanente where I gained experience working in an integrated care delivery model which included extensive use of telemedicine; I have since continued to work in this space at Dartmouth-Hitchcock, currently within Connected Care as well as a co-investigator on several research grants as COVID-19 has spurred rapid, massive expansion in the use of telemedicine. It is a substantial tool for improving access and equitability of access and I look forward to furthering our understanding of best practices and impacts in this realm.

Mentoring Information

Part of my work includes coaching medical students already, beyond my teaching roles - I am happy to find time to mentor anyone interested in healthcare, especially primary care, particularly those who are under-represented in medicine generally.
