I am an avid college and professional sports fan, with my roots in Chicago. I enjoy cycling, fitness, reading, and advocating for public health policies that reduce the risk of lung cancer. Lucky husband, and proud father of two. Undergraduate degree from the University of Illinois in Biomedical Engineering (1986), and M.D. from the University of Illinois College of medicine in Chicago (1990).
