I left residency to work in Tucson for the UPI. In 1999 I was awarded a Fulbright Senior Scholars grant to teach medical education in Argentina, and was there for the last half of 1999. Upon my return my office (Broadway Health Center in Tucson) had been closed due to financial problems, so I took a job working in urgent care for Northwest Hospital while I decided my next move. I eventually accepted a job teaching at the Tufts Family Medicine Residency in Malden MA (near Boston). I was there for about a year until transferring to Lynn Community Health Center an urban health center serving mostly Dominican, Guatemalan and Cambodian immigrants. I started the family medicine service on Labor and delivery at the North Shore Hospital in Salem MA (the first of it's kind at that hospital), and took a job as predoctoral director for Tufts Med Family Medicine. A couple of years later my father became ill, and the stress of his illness and a poorly supported office led me to resign the job in Lynn, and I took a different job in Somerville MA, at a Harvard associated office serving mostly Brazilians. I have been with this same PO (the Cambridge Health Alliance) for the last 7 years, where I have been associate department chief for a time, and now am the Harvard Medical School family medicine advisor, a part time teacher at the Tufts Family Medicine residency, as well as a delighted clinician working mostly with reproductive aged Brazilian and Salvadoran women in Cambridge.
Fulbright recipient, was associate dept chair for FM for 5 years, currently Harvard Family Med advisor
