    Collapse Overview
    My interest in social medicine and working with underserved and vulnerable populations started when I was an undergraduate anthropology major, and was cemented after college when I did a year of service with AmeriCorps in Berkeley, CA. I was drawn to the Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospitalfor its focus on how social determinants affect the health of individuals and communities, and I bring this worldview to my current work. My interests include working to improve access to care for the underserved through advocacy and programmatic innovation in transitions of care to the community. In my medical education roles, my primary interests are in training and sustaining physicians to care for vulnerable patients in the safety net through skills development and systems improvements that support effective patient-centered practice and physician well-being.
