Joe chose UNC for its academic and clinical rigor and its genuine warmth, as well as its deep commitment to serving the whole community across North Carolina and beyond. He is grateful to train at such a collegial institution with a pre-eminent presence in global public health, diverse clinical settings, and an emphasis on education and mentorship.

Jose finds joy in the social experience of music and has led groups performing jazz, gospel, punk rock, and musical theater.

Recently, he’s been the musical director for the Bard Hall Players, taking on a production of Legally Blonde.¬†Joseph will most likely be recruited for the Cool Ridings crew.
