Additional Information

I am ABIM board certified in Internal Medicine and Endocrinology, Metabolism and Nutrition. I also hold clinical certifications in Clinical Lipidology and as a Certified Clinical Densitomitrist to perform and interpret bone density studies. I completed a BS in Human Nutrition at Michigan State University and MD at Wayne State University. I also have performed non-degree studies in Public Health. I completed specialty training in Internal Medicine at Baltimore City Hospital/Francis Scott Key Medical Center/Johns Hopkins University and a Clinical/Senior Research Fellowship in Endocrinology and Nutrition at the University of Washington. My research has focussed on the effects of nutrients, hormones and estrogen on lipid and bone metabolism. I have clinical and research expertise in general endocrinology, human nutrition, lipid metabolism, metabolic bone disease, osteoporosis, women's health, estrogen therapy and thyroid disease. I have served as the Clinical Core Director for the National Center of Excellence in Women's Health at Tulane University School of Medicine. I have lectured widely on Clinical Endocrine and research topics and have authored over 60 publications. I have excellent written and communication skills, and enjoy working on collaborative projects.
