I am a physician, ethicist and public health professional. My MD/PhD was non-traditional; my PhD is in Religion, Ethics, and Society, and throughout my program, I had the opportunity to serve as an ethics consultant for the Vanderbilt Transplant Center. My dissertation and much of my academic work have focused on ethical and policy issues in organ donation and transplantation. On the other hand, my clinical work as a Med/Peds physician and preventive cardiologist has focused on care for vulnerable and underserved populations, from a cardiovascular risk reduction program for uninsured adults to a street outreach clinic for homeless youth. During my fellowship, I was also able to complete a Master’s in Public Health which provides an additional skill set to address social determinants of health and health disparities.
