My professional work and passion focuses on: 1. Preparing the primary care workforce to better manage diabetes; and 2. optimizing the prevention and treatment of diabetes. After 10 years in primary care I completed a Diabetes Management Fellowship and have been focusing on care of the patient with diabetes ever since. I have served as the Director of an integrated comprehensive diabetes care center and also as the Director of Clinical Research at both Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine (HCOM) and more recently Touro University California College of Osteopathic Medicine. I served a the Director of the Diabetes Fellowship Program for Primary Care Physicians at HCOM and look forward to expanding this training opportunity to new professionals and a new institution. I still advise the program at HCOM and serve on a national ad hoc committee of American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists on implementing primary care diabetes training even more broadly. I have served on a number of national roles such as Chair of the Primary Care Advisory Group of the American Diabetes Association and the Chair of the Research Committee of the Guidelines Advantage- a collaboration between the American Heart Association, American Cancer Society and the American Diabetes Association.  I have been NCQA certified throughout my time as a Diabetologist and have helped each of our Fellows achieve this honor.

Have served in both primary care and specialist roles I am acutely aware of the gaps in the health care system that lead to fragmented poorly coordinated and executed care. Further having been active in measuring quality of care I am accustomed and very knowledgeable of the clinical shortcomings of clinical practice self-assessment.
