Departments & Organizations
I began my 27 year research career at Duke University and the Durham VA in 1991 and moved to VA Connecticut and University of Connecticut in 2012. In January 2016, I was appointed Section Chief of Chief of General Internal Medicine at VA Connecticut in West Haven. In this role, I oversee the academic development and clinical productivity of the hospitalists, primary care, and research faculty based at VA Connecticut. In February 2016, I was appointed the Director and Principal Investigator of the Pain Research, Informatics, Multimorbidities, and Education (PRIME) Center of Excellence at VA Connecticut. This is a 5-year center grant with over 3 million in infrastructure support for multidisciplinary research focusing on improving pain in Veterans. In 2018, The PRIME Center received a 5-year renewal to 2023.
