Founder Clinician Engineer Hub
I am a hospitalist at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, PA. I am also a medical liaison at Jefferson's Digital Innovation and Consumer Experience (DICE) group that is focused on bridging the gap between clinical medicine and innovation.C I have a strong interest in innovation and leadership in the field of medicine. In the pursuit of these interests, I have held multiple leadership positions such as President of Jefferson's Student Council and CEO of the Community of Health & Innovation Professionals (CHiP) to name a couple, where the sole mission was to revolutionize the medical field for both physicians and their patients. Other interests include being captain of Jefferson's flag football team, Wing Chun kung fu, cooking, and playing bass guitar in a local band. Very interested in networking with anyone who would like to help foster and develop ideas or projects for a better tomorrow, whether that be innovating inside the field of medicine or the individuals affected by it.
