Introduction I started blogging in 2010. Nathan Hellman was a huge influence in my interest in blogging. I went to medical school at UAMS in Little Rock, AR where I did my internal medicine residency and completed a chief resident year. Dr. Thomas Andreoli was a great influence in my decision to specialize in nephrology. Currently I'm on Faculty at Duke University and the Durham VA Medical Centers. I study mouse models of hypertension as it relates to the renin-angiotensin and prostanoid systems. I'm also interested social media as a means of enhancing medical education and learning.
