MY PUBLICATIONS

Understanding Addiction and Health Disparities

As a psychiatrist, I'm fortunate to conduct research in addition to working with patients. My research focuses on understanding and treating addiction. I also focus on addressing health disparities; particularly those affecting lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people. I’ve written a variety of articles for medical journals, newspapers, and magazines. My goal is to help doctors and medical students better understand addiction and LGBT health so they can provide compassionate, competent care. Read some of my work below.
