For 23 years, I was an attorney in the Division of Investment Management at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in Washington, D.C.
I expect many of my posts to focus on health and medicine. I became interested in medical research while researching treatment options for my teenage daughter, who has heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia, a genetic disease that causes very high LDL-cholesterol. In addition, I am a breast cancer survivor and may blog occasionally on issues related to breast cancer. I am a member of the Society for Participatory Medicine. In addition, I am a member/administrator of the Familial Hypercholesterolemia (FH) Discussion Group on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/47098836197/). As of September 2013, I became a member of the editorial board of Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes, one of the American Heart Association journals. In November 2013, I joined the ABIM Assessment 2020 Task Force.
