What I do

I am a passionate pharmacy educator and clinician. I currently teach and direct a couple of the first year Applied Patient Care Skills courses and work as a clinical pharmacist for the Division of Cardiology. I am also working on implementing innovative models of pharmacy practice, such as treating hypertension in barbershops in the Bay Area, and hope to include our students in these efforts.
