Research Bio

Elizabeth received her medical degree from the Medical School for International Health in Beer Sheva Israel in 2002. She then completed a year of public health and refugee studies in Forced Migration at Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health. An interest in global health drew her to residency in Rochester, and she traveled to Honduras and Haiti during her training. She stayed on as Chief Resident and then joined the Family Medicine faculty. Her current responsibilities include seeing patients, teaching residents, and organizing the medical school's FM electives. She has continued to travel to Honduras with the resident program. She enjoys providing maternity care as well as caring for refugee populations. Elizabeth and her husband live in Rochester and enjoy outside activities, working on their house, and trying a variety of ethnic foods
