I am an endocrinologist with specialty training in osteoporosis, clinical densitometry, and culinary medicine. My clinical practice is at the Dr. David Hanley Osteoporosis Centre, where I provide one-on-one osteoporosis care and also facilitate a novel group consultation program.
My research at the University of Calgary focuses on: 1) the effects of nutrition, supplements, exercise, and medication on bone health and osteoporosis, and 2) the role of shared medical appointments and group education (including culinary medicine) in helping people live healthier lives.
When I'm not in the clinic or working on research, you will most likely find me buried in a good book, running alongside the nearest body of water, or cooking a nutritious and delicious meal.
A survey aiming to provide information about womens' perspectives on bone health and osteoporosis. Launching soon!
A cohort study evaluating patient and provider experiences with a shared medical appointment in the osteoporosis clinic. Ongoing.
Development of a culinary medicine curriculum for people with and at risk of osteoporosis. Recruiting soon.
I am one of the clinical osteoporosis leads on this McCaig Institute cohort study which aims to evaluate and improve the mobility and quality of life of Calgarians. Recruiting now!
