    My clinical responsibilities include seeing patients at the San Francisco VA Medical Center ambulatory care clinic. I serve as an Associate Director of the Center of Excellence in Primary Care Education at the San Francisco VA where I teach workshops on topics ranging from basic communication skills to mentoring trainees across racial and ethnic differences. My local and national education practice includes teaching and coaching students, trainees and physicians in communication skills that increase quality, safety and improve patient experience. I also serve as Specialist for minority students at the UCSF School of Medicine and as a member of the Academy on Communication in Healthcare Diversity Committee.
