About Me

I am currently Professor and Chair of the Department of Emergency Medicine, Professor of Internal Medicine, and Chief of Emergency Medical Services for The Ohio State University. After completing undergraduate studies with a BA in history at Dartmouth College, I attended medical school at the Pennsylvania State University. Then I completed a combined emergency medicine/internal medicine residency at Allegheny General Hospital, where I served as chief resident. I received my MPH in clinical and translational sciences at The Ohio State University.

I’ve been a proud Buckeye since completing residency in 2004 and was appointed as Department Chair in January 2020. I previously served as Vice Chair for Research in the Department and as Associate Dean for Research. My academic and research interests center around geriatric emergency medicine with funding since 2007 including receipt of a Hartford Foundation Jahnigen grant and NIA K23 Beeson and R01 grants for studies to improve diagnosis of infection, particularly UTI in older adults. I currently am primary mentor for three NIA K23 and K76 training grants, am past chair of the SAEM Academy of Geriatric Emergency Medicine, and was an author on the original Geriatric ED guidelines which serve as the foundation for the creation of ACEP’s geriatric ED service program.
