Bio

My specialties include Internal Medicine and Preventive Medicine. I have a focus on heath disparities including TB, Hepatitis B, cancer, Native American Health and Asian American Health. In 2012-2013, I worked as an epidemiologist on MDR TB in Swaziland and as a primary care physician in Syria. In 2015, I worked as an epidemiologist in Sierra Leone in the Ebola response. In the past, I have worked on Hepatitis B health bulletins in New York City and original research publications on cancer disparities in the Asian American population in New York City. Previously in the last 2 years, I was the Hepatitis B Program Director at the Charles B. Wang Community Health Center in New York City. Currently, I am on the steering committee for the National Viral Hepatitis Roundtable, Board member of Chinese American Medical Society and regional focal point for NYC MSF returned volunteers. Since April 2016, I am the Director of Adult Immunization & Emergency Preparedness and the medical director of immunization clinic for the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.
