I serve as director of sickle cell research for The Ohio State University and am co-director of the Sickle Cell Program. In addition, I’m involved in a variety of related national organizations, including the boards of the American Society of Hematology Sickle Cell Disease Guideline Committee and the Sickle Cell Adult Provider Network. I also serve an assistant professor of internal medicine for Ohio State, and have authored more than a dozen articles for publication as well as presented nearly 40 abstracts and presentations.
What I enjoy most working at The James is the tremendous desire of people to work together to provide optimal care for patients. We put aside our egos, collaborate and strive toward providing the best care and treatment for our patients in an effort to improve lives and outcomes.
