I completed training in advanced heart failure and cardiovascular disease, and continue to maintain an active practice in the Comprehensive Heart Failure program at Yale. My clinical interests are in women's cardiovascular disease and the management of cardiac disease in pregnancy, with a focus on heart failure affecting pregnancy (permpartum cardiomyopathy). I am a co-director of Yale Maternal Cardiology, which is a multidisciplinary program between Cardiology and Maternal Fetal Medicine to provide comprehensive care for women with cardiovascular disease who are pregnant or are contemplating pregnancy.

Clinical Trials

New treatments for many conditions are tested in clinical trials, which ultimately bring lifesaving new drugs and devices to the patients who need them most. By participating in a clinical trial, you may get access to the most advanced treatments for your condition, and help determine their benefits for future patients.
