I am interested in leveraging VA data to establish the incidence of adrenal-based secondary hypertension and—separately—primary hyperparathyroidism, develop machine/AI tools to assist primary care providers in identifying patients with these disorders, and bring the results of this research to the bedside to cure Veterans.
