Research InterestsAs the Director of Cardiovascular Wellness for the Geisinger, and a Clinician-Scientist in the Cardiovascular Division of the Geisinger Medical Center I have the opportunity to focus my research on one of the most important healthcare issues today – cardiovascular disease. While over the past decade I have had the opportunity to serve as principle investigator of, or had a leadership role in over a dozen international, multicenter randomized clinical trials of novel therapies my current research focus is directed more towards how to best implement proven therapies population-wide. My research work at Geisinger is in the application of an integrated systems-based approach to the optimal identification, communication, and treatment of an individual’s risk for various manifestations of cardiovascular disease. Doing so allows me the exciting opportunity to be directly engaged with other researchers and clinicians throughout the health system including the Medical Center, Community Practice Service Line, the Division of Innovation, and the Geisinger Health Plan.
