Academic Bio

After graduation from the University of Utah Physician Assistant Program in 1983, I practiced family medicine for 24 years in the Salt Lake Community Health Center system caring for inner city and Homeless underserved populations. Since 2007 I have volunteered at the Maliheh Free Clinic one session per week seeing a diverse population of uninsured patients.
