I am privileged to serve as the Dean for the School of Health Professions at Stony Brook University. Having the opportunity to lead and collaborate with such a talented group of faculty, administrators, and staff in achieving the School’s and University’s visions of being the premier institution of future health professionals is a true honor. I look forward to advancing the School in the areas of scholarship, teaching, service to the community, and interprofessional practice, while being particularly mindful of our needs for creating a diverse educational and clinical workforce.

I recognize that our School's reputation also lies with our outstanding alumni who have gone on to deliver exceptional healthcare.  I invite you to connect with us, and if possible, provide partnerships for our current students. Connect with us in the following ways:
