I’m a heart surgeon, educator, and athlete. I’m learning to be a writer.
Jackson, Mississippi is my home.
I’m a faculty member at the University of Mississippi School of Medicine, where my clinical practice is devoted to adult heart surgery. I enjoy teaching medical students and residents who are training to become surgeons.
I swim, bike, and run. I’m best at swimming.
My goal for the Athlete’s Heart Blog is to share information about athletes and heart health. There’s not enough quality online information that’s also easy to read. Here at the blog–and with all of my social media outlets–the views expressed are my own and not my employer’s.
You can also catch me on Twitter at @athletesheart, on Facebook at /athletesheart, and as an occasional columnist at the Endurance Corner website.
I enjoy speaking to groups about athletes and heart health. Check out my recent events, interviews, and scientific articles.
