Career/Research Interests: I am still developing my career and research interests within endocrinology. I have always been passionate about health care disparities and I hope to incorporate that into future research and development.

I truly enjoy the many opportunities it has provided for me. The faculty at our hospital are known worldwide, and are truly top notch. It has been an honor to learn from them.
