    Collapse Overview
    I am a clinician educator with a particular interest in diabetes and obesity. Boarded in Adult Endocrinology as well as General Pediatrics, my clinic work has focused on Adult Diabetes as well as Adult and Pediatric Obesity. I work mainly at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital caring for the San Francisco Safety Net Population. I also direct the UCSF Diabetes Teaching Center where we focus on diabetes educational programs. I participate in research activities, co-investigating on studies about that pertain to diabetes (ex., Metagenomics in Filipinos with Diabetes and the effect of Ketogenic Diet in Type 2 Diabetes). I also enjoy a multitude of teaching activities that range from the School of Medicine, School of Nursing, UCSF Residents and Fellows.
