I am available as a project mentor to residents, fellows, or junior faculty who are interested in completing and publishing a manuscript in an area related to my work. I am an endocrinologist and health services researcher with a focus on care coordination. My particular areas of interest are in coordination of care between primary and subspecialty care, and in use of e-consults to improve access to care without the need for a patient visit. I have experience with interview data collection and analysis, secondary data analysis, and survey development and administration. I have successfully mentored several fellows in the publication of manuscripts and welcome the opportunity to work with mentees on writing and publishing.
