I am enamored with the process of melding my medical knowledge with each patient’s expertise of their own bodies and lived experience. Through relationship-based work, we can together design the best plan for addressing medical issues as well as the social influences that shape health. Beyond the exam room, I also see my role as an advocate for individual and community health and social justice. I am thrilled to be joining the Packard Health team in this work.
