SUMMARY

I am a charismatic NYU and former Harvard Medical School doctor who is passionate about educating and empowering the public to make healthy lifestyle decisions through nutrition, mindfulness and addiction awareness. As the former Chief of Addiction Medicine for Rikers Island and doctor to Boston’s homeless men and women, I am an expert on serving the underserved. As a Huffington Post contributor and blogger, I merge medicine with media to share patients’ journeys. I use media, television and film to change lives for the better through science and storytelling. Media/sizzle reel.
