    Harbor-UCLA Medical Center

    I am the vice chair for academic affairs and an associate professor of emergency medicine at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center. I completed emergency medicine residency at Kings County Hospital Center/SUNY Downstate Medical Center, followed by a clinical research fellowship at Jacobi Medical Center, with a Masters in Clinical Research Methods. After completing a NIH KL2 Career Development Award and a Masters in Translational Science at George Washington University, I became one of the first board-certified clinical informaticists in the country. I've served on multiple committees for SAEM continuously since 2010, and am on the editorial board for Academic Emergency Medicine journal since 2015. Until I became a vice chair in my department, my academic focus had been on health services research, pursuing funded projects collaboratively with the community to address the most current and challenging concerns of the underserved. I am running for a position on the ADIEM Executive Committee because it is not enough to advocate for students, residents, fellows, and junior faculty as vice chair in my own department. Emergency medicine departments around the country have common challenges when it comes to equity, diversity and inclusion, and I want to help identify and disseminate collaborative solutions to improve opportunities everywhere, from pipeline to recruitment and retention to promotion and leadership.
