About Me

I specialize in the use of radiation therapy in the treatment of hematologic malignancies (lymphoma, leukemia, multiple myeloma, bone marrow transplantation) and breast cancer. I received my MD and PhD degrees at Duke University through participation in the Medical Scientist Training Program sponsored by the NIH and completed training in the Harvard Radiation Oncology Program.

A national expert in community engagement, my research is focused on the design and implementation of programming to reduce sociocultural and economic barriers that contribute to disparate health outcomes for racial/ethnic minorities and underserved populations.

My goal is to empower the community with knowledge and encourage policymakers to invest in initiatives designed to eliminate inequities in the health care delivery system.
