What I’m interested in:
I am most interested in addressing substance use disorders in underrepresented minority populations, particularly in rural and border towns.
How I’ve been developing at BCM:
BCM has provided valuable opportunities to grow not just as a physician but an educator, researcher, and advocate for my patients.
Highlights of my training:
My favorite part of training has been my year working in our county hospital’s Substance Addiction Treatment (SAT) clinic. It was rewarding to use life-changing medications such as Suboxone and apply important psychotherapeutic interventions for patients who have historically experienced significant barriers to receiving care.
My projects, tracks, or research:
I am on the Clinician Educator Track (CET). In addition, I am completing the REACH fellowship through SAMHSA/AAAP/Yale.
