CLINICAL ACTIVITIES

Clinical Focus

Annually I attend six weeks on the inpatient General Cardiology Service and 10 days on the Janeway ACS Service. In the outpatient setting, I serve as Director of the Ciccarone Advanced Lipid Disorders Clinic. The multidisciplinary clinic involves a dietitian, genetic counselor, nurse practitioner, and the specialty pharmacy. The clinic has seen substantial growth under my leadership, with multiple daily referrals from around the country and internationally. We care for patients with genetic dyslipidemias, including familial hypercholesterolemia, familial combined hyperlipidemia, and familial hypertriglyceridemia, as well as patients with statin intolerance, HDL disorders, and elevated Lp(a).

EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITIES

Educational Focus

As an Osler Medical Housestaff Training Program Firm Faculty Clinical Coach and Educator, I am paired with three interns and two JARs. For each intern, I observe 3 new patient interactions (H&P + counseling) and review 3 admission or progress notes over the course of the year. For each JAR, I review one admission note and observe one teaching rounds. I also attend faculty development sessions, firm grand rounds, social events, and actively participate in intern recruitment. Furthermore, I serve as a resource for my firm’s residents for career, research, and professional development advice.

RESEARCH ACTIVITIES

Research Focus

My research is grounded in preventive cardiology, with a focus on multiple complementary areas including lipidology, cardiovascular risk assessment, mobile/digital health, big data, and precision medicine. I led the development of an algorithm for LDL cholesterol estimation that is now validated and being translated back into clinical practice. I am moving into the area of mobile/digital health with the long-term aim of improving outcomes in the prevention of cardiovascular disease.

SYSTEM INNOVATION AND QUALITY IMPROVEMENT ACTIVITIES

System Innovation Focus

I am faculty lead of the Johns Hopkins Corrie mobile health platform, a SI/QI initiative to reengineer the hospital discharge process. Currently we are using our platform to empower myocardial infarction patients in (1) skill-building for diet, exercise, and medication habits, (2) connecting with resources to help recovery, and (3) data analytics and biofeedback on steps, heart rate, and blood pressure with smart tools including an Apple Watch and Bluetooth blood pressure monitor. This patient self-management tool is provided early in admission to help patients improve their recovery and skills early.
