I am an interventional gastroenterologist with a focused interest in pancreatic and biliary disorders as well as malignant conditions of the GI tract. I have been interested in the interface between religion/spirituality and health for more than 2 decades offering courses at Bahá’í schools, online, and in the regional medical community. As a Bahá’í health care provider I continue to seek collaboration with others who see health care practice as a primary outlet for service and as a way for individual and collective reeducation on the nature of the human condition.
