The majority of my effort is devoted to clinical care of patients with advanced lung disease and teaching.

I spend four months a year in Eldoret Kenya working at Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital as part of The Duke Hubert Yeargan Institute for Global Health and AMPATH- a consortium of North American Medical Schools collaborating with Moi University School of Medicine and Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital. I work primarily in the intensive care unit and medicine wards. I am involved in broad range of research efforts in critical care and pulmonary medicine  in resource limited countries.
