To Contact:

My academic career interest is the design and conduct of community-based, clinical trials for the prevention and treatment of common, age-related conditions including, but not limited to, memory loss and physical function decline.  As a geriatrician and educator, I am aware of the need for stakeholders with various perspectives to work together to provide answers for questions that matter to the health and well-being of our communities in the Chicago metropolitan area and beyond.  I understand how to lead teams to successfully complete large, clinical trial and other research projects.
