Dr. Shenvi received her undergraduate degree in Chemistry, graduating summa cum laude from Princeton University, PhD from UC-Berkeley in Chemical Biology, and MD from Yale Medical School. She then completed residency training in Emergency Medicine at UNC Hospitals, and stayed at UNC for fellowship training in Geriatric Emergency Medicine. She is currently an assistant residency program director at UNC. Her primary research interest is in alcohol misuse among older adults. Her current research focuses on the ability to screen and identify older adults with alcohol misuse in the Emergency Department (ED), and the effect of brief interventions on rates of future alcohol misuse.
