I am a practicing, board certified hematology/oncology physician in Chicago. I speak on topics ranging from the impact of social media on healthcare, how physicians can utilize social media, how to write Op-eds in the medical world, gender equity and barriers to career advancement, and topics in GI oncology and immunotherapy. My goal is to explain complicated topics in simple terms. I also enjoy writing and you can find some of my writing on this site. I am mother to a strong willed three and a half year old girl and twin baby boys, and a wife to a gastroenterologist. I look forward to connecting with you.
