Clinical Assistant Professor



"My favorite thing about my job is the opportunity to work with a diverse patient population and the opportunity to make a difference in their everyday lives. I joined the university because I love the down-to-earth people here in Iowa. What inspires me about medicine is the complexity of the human body and the ability to restore and enhance my patients so that they may get the most out of their lives." — PJ Hawkes
