Professional Background

Dr. Kadura grew up in Canastota, NY. She completed her undergraduate degree at Syracuse University and her medical degree at Universidad Central del Caribe in Puerto Rico. She was an internal medicine resident here at URMC. She then practiced hospital medicine for seven years, where she enjoyed quality improvement work and teaching medical students and residents. During that time, she also obtained an MBA through the University of Rochester's Simon Business School.

Wanting to be more involved in her patients' overall health and well-being, Dr. Kadura then decided to pursue training in sleep medicine. As faculty at the sleep disorders center, she evaluates and treats patients with various conditions such as obstructive sleep apnea, insomnia, restless legs syndrome, and circadian rhythm sleep-wake disorders. She continues to see inpatients at Highland Hospital.

Her special interests are born from her clinical experience in hospital medicine and sleep and include sleep in the inpatient setting and improving sleep by leveraging technology.

In addition to her clinical work, she is also a Director of Informatics and participates in committee work through the American Medical Informatics Association.
