Personal Information


Currently Teaching (2013-2014)


  • Complementary and integrated care for the elderly
  • Clinical trials

I think it is important for complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) clinicians to incorporate research evidence into their clinical practice. I help instill this value into Northwestern’s student body by helping teach the Foundations of Evidence Informed Practice course in the chiropractic and acupuncture colleges. I like to keep up-to-date on research on adverse events and other ethical issues in the acupuncture profession and real versus sham acupuncture debate.

My research experience to-date has focused on the elderly. I was a treating clinician and a project manager on a demonstration project to integrate acupuncture, chiropractic and massage therapy into long-term care facilities. Currently, I’m gaining practical experience in clinical research managing a randomized clinical trial of chiropractic and exercise in seniors.
