I work as a freelance medical consultant and writer in the fields of biotech and emerging medical device technology.
I have written monographs, articles for peer-reviewed medical journals and multi-media presentations. I also have directed and produce content for CME programs.
I attended the SUNY Health Science Center medical school in Brooklyn, graduating in 1994. I have been trained in Clinical Pathology, Anatomic Pathology, and General Surgery.
My involvement with Medical Informatics began in medical school during which I evaluated experts systems for clinical support.
I continue to evaluate and review hardware and software for clinical use, including wireless handhelds and medical cell phones. I co-produced a Webinar for Palm that explored the clinical use of their Treo smartphone.
i'm especially interested in the concept of the medical cell phone. it was a surgery resident rotating through the icu, that i discovered the utility of using a web-connected cell phone (treo 300) for clinical support. as a result i co-produced a webinar for palm, presenting the medical uses of the treo 600 to an audience of physicians. now the treo has the support of microsoft, and continues to be one of the best designed smart phones.
