As a family practice physician I enjoy caring for the whole spectrum of human life-stages. My primary practice is at the Webb Center for Primary Care, and I also enjoy working in the Denver Health hospital on the adult family practice service. My clinical practice is based in caring for the under-insured populations of Denver with a heavy emphasis on immigrants and individuals in lower socio-economic groups. In this capacity I teach clinical medicine both to medical students from the University of Colorado School of Medicine as well as residents from the University of Colorado Family Medicine Residency Program (UCFMRP). At the UCFMRP I am the director and developer of the Global and Underserved Health curriculum and was voted DH Family Medicine Faculty of the Year in 2013. I also have a strong interest in tobacco and marijuana. I serve on a variety of boards, both within Denver Health and within the Colorado Department of Health and Environment in an attempt to reduce the impact of tobacco on my patient populations.
My academic interests include tobacco, marijuana and global health curriculum development.
the a board member of the Tobacco Education, Prevention and Cessation Grant Program Review Committee where I represent the socio-demographic disadvantaged populations of Colorado. This committee is mandated by the Colorado legislature to oversee the state-wide disbursement of tobacco tax revenue to programs focused on tobacco education, cessation and prevention under the Colorado Amendment 35 statutes. I am also the Co-Chair of the Denver Health Tobacco Intervention Committee where I am working to pilot and develop tobacco cessation initiatives for DH patients and communities. I have volunteered extensively with a variety of international health organizations and NGO’s and have acted as a health-care consultant to a venture capital group pursuing international health related investments.
