  • “I consider it a privilege to be able to treat patients.”

Even as a young kid I knew I wanted to make a difference in people's lives, so becoming a doctor felt like a natural choice for me. Then, I was drawn to gastroenterology because I can do procedures in the hospital and still get to connect with people in the outpatient setting. Gastrointestinal disorders really affect patients on a day-to-day basis, so it is very rewarding to develop plans to help them feel and function better.

I focused on pancreatic disorders in my fellowship, which led me to get involved in the cystic fibrosis (CF) world. While most people think of CF as a lung disease, it has a huge impact on the liver and digestive system, too.

It's been wonderful to build these fantastic relationships with patients. The best part about being a doctor is getting to know the patients and their families. I consider it a privilege to be able to treat patients, so I want to work together as a team. Part of that means listening to the patient and their parents because I value their perspective.

Zinc: Roles in pancreatic physiology and disease. Pancreatology : official journal of the International Association of Pancreatology (IAP) ... [et al.] Wang, M. n., Phadke, M. n., Packard, D. n., Yadav, D. n., Gorelick, F. n. 2020; 20 (7): 141320


Zinc is an essential trace element. Deficiencies are frequently seen with gastrointestinal diseases, including chronic pancreatitis, nutritional deficiency, and reduced intestinal absorption. Additionally, reduced zinc levels have been linked to cellular changes associated with acute pancreatitis such as enhanced inflammation with increased macrophage activation and production of inflammatory cytokines such as IL-1, impaired autophagy, and modulation of calcium homeostasis. Preliminary data suggest that zinc deficiency may lead to pancreatic injury in animal models. The purpose of this review is to explore the biologic effects of zinc deficiency that could impact pancreatic disease. MESH KEYWORDS: Malnutrition, inflammation, trace element.
