Internal medicine and global health equity resident at Brigham & Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School

In a previous life I was an LGBT-rights activist, and in medicine I'm looking to bring that radicalism to the bedside, to writing, to advocacy. My interests include health equity in global and local contexts, universal health care, (elimination of) racial and socioeconomic health disparities, and medical ethics. I work in medicine, but play and dream in the kingdom of literature.

Boston is the home base where I scheme with Nadia, my partner and North Star of moral clarity, but I have pursued or am pursuing medical projects in Ethiopia, Burundi, Rwanda, Ecuador, Mexico, the Navajo Nation, Israel, and Palestine.
