Personal: My life has been marked by bridging diverse experiences. I grew up in a multi-ethnic family, spending most of my childhood between West Virginia and the suburbs of Chicago. In high school, I was struggling to decide between pursuing music or medicine for a career. I studied biochemistry in college, but also got a solid liberal arts education. I straddled the medical and research worlds with my MD/PhD training, with my research project bridging “wet lab” molecular biology with “dry lab” bioinformatics. My wife, young son and I are ecstatic to be here in the Shenandoah Valley. I am looking forward to bringing my research background into family medicine and a community health setting, and learning more about how to integrate lifestyle interventions and data into helping patients manage chronic illness.
