As director of the Duke Heart Failure Same-Day Access Clinic, I am dedicated to improving outcomes for patients with heart failure. This clinic allows patients to see a health care provider quickly, and receive treatments for relief of symptoms. I strive to help patients with heart failure avoid the emergency department and hospital when possible, and live better at home.

As director of education IT innovations in the Department of Medicine, I lead efforts in continuing medical education.
