Bio

I work as a hospitalist in the Phoenix, Arizona, metro area.  When not in the hospital stamping out disease and suffering, I write health and nutrition-related articles and books with a focus on preventive medicine, weight management, type 2 diabetes, dementia, heart disease, high blood pressure, longevity, and medical conditions caused by overweight. 

My current project is a comprehensive adaptation of the healthy Mediterranean diet for people with type 2 diabetes.  Why?  People with diabetes are prone to develop heart disease, dementia, certain cancers, and premature death.  The Mediterranean diet is proven to counteract all those trends.
