I grew up in Madison, but attended medical training in St. Louis and Ann Arbor. I work in both hospital and outpatient settings, and was on the faculty at Yale before coming back to live in Wisconsin. I was a Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholar, which is a kind of research fellowship. I spend much of my time doing research and teaching at the medical school, but I feel very strongly that I need to keep in touch with my patient's needs. My research is in the area of doctor-patient communication, but I also do work in newborn screening, genetics, bioethics, and health services research.
