I am a graduate of Bennington College and Boston University School of Medicine, and am a Fellow of the American Heart Association, the American College of Cardiology, and the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology. I currently serve as a professor of cardiology and population health inclusion initiatives. Among other awards received, I was the recipient of the 2011 national American Heart Association Louis B. Russell, Jr., Memorial Award, presented annually to an AHA volunteer for outstanding service in addressing healthcare disparities and/or service to minority and underserved communities. I was also awarded a 2002 New York State Governor’s award for excellence in Health care, and was listed as one of the best doctors in New York magazine. I’ve also appeared many times on such programs “Good Morning America” and “The Today show.”
As a cardiologist, why have I chosen to be an advisor to High School Yearbook? I am a clinical researcher and a patient and community health advocate who is dedicated to empowering people to be partners in their health. Therapeutic story telling is a powerful way for young cancer patients and survivors to provide support and healing for others, as well as creating a possible pathway to altered behaviors that can potentially improve health. HSYB opens the possibility for such healing on a global level.
