Cardiovascular disease epidemiology with specific areas related to heart failure, genetic epidemiology, pharmacogenomics, and environmental health. I am also interested in translation-oriented methods to assess the burden of cardiovascular diseases in diverse populations.

Another shot from our elusive #Gillings #Drone of students from #UNC #Gillings Public Health 600 class out in one of our many courtyards discussing some finer points of information and collaborating on best strategies. That, and they were enjoying the fantastic weather, which we get in abundance here (although I lied about the drone – it was FacebookGuy standing on a brick wall. But hey, so are most drones...).View on Facebook
Your ship may have come in! Fellowship, that is, #UNC #Gillings! The Dennis and Mireille Gillings Global Public Health Fellowship - a collaboration between #UNC #Gillings and the Institut Pasture(!) Two are available but you must apply before Sept. 26. Don't let this prestigious (Fellow)ship sail without you! http://sph.unc.edu/files/2014/07/Pasteur-temp.pdfView on Facebook
REJECT THE STATIONARY HEALTH PARADIGM!! Ok, so maybe we don't want to be that extreme, but increased communication mobility (i.e. insert your fave ringtone here) means increased opportunity to bring health information, prevention and care EVERYWHERE. Which is why YOU should attend this awesome #UNC #Gillings presentation, aptly titled "Exploring Careers in Mobile Health" on Sept 22. Featured guests include #UNC #Gillings 2013 alumn Katie D. McMillan(!). REGISTER NOW: http://bit.ly/SPHmhealthView on Facebook
