I’m a neurologist at MidHudson Regional Hospital. I encourage patients to stay physically active – so, running fits right in with my work. Exercise is beneficial for mood, good sleep and reduces risk of cardiovascular disease and dementia. When I was a kid, I couldn’t exercise without shortness of breath. While encouraging my son to run and join his high school cross-country team, I learned I had exercise-induced asthma. I now breathe more easily with inhalers and I run regularly. With inspiration from friends, family and patients, I ran my first marathon in 2016 and was hooked. I’m overjoyed to represent MidHudson Regional Hospital and WMCHealth in the greatest of all marathons. I’m raising funds to benefit our community and will make my family, friends, running mates and co-workers proud!
I am excited to represent MidHudson Regional Hospital and WMCHealth in the 2018 TCS New York City Marathon. I am going the distance for our patients.
Thank you for your support!
