The University of Iowa is a wonderful institution that affords me the resources and technology to tackle the toughest heart rhythm disorders. The state of Iowa is filled with wonderful citizens but unfortunately not enough heart rhythm specialists. I relish the opportunity to mobilize the university's resources for restoring quality of life to Iowans by fixing their heart rhythm issues.
