Dr. Ali has been a thoughtful leader in developing programs for diabetes, but because he completed his medical education in South Africa and the United Kingdom, he has not experienced a traditional U.S. residency program. As the LaHouse Scholar of Family and Preventive Medicine, Dr. Ali will follow an individualized curriculum to learn the practical aspects of being a physician, so that he can bring his epidemiological work to the bedside as he continues his research. The LaHouse Scholarship gives the Department of Family and Preventive Medicine the flexibility to bring a non-traditional resident into our program, where he can benefit from our expertise in training and we can benefit from his knowledge and leadership.

In addition to being Associate Professor of Global Health and Epidemiology at the Rollins School of Public Health, Dr. Ali is involved with the Diabetes Translation group at CDC as well as the Action to Control Cardiovascular Disease in Diabetes (ACCORD) Quality of Life and Cost-Effectiveness group. In addition to his research and teaching responsibilities, Dr. Ali serves as a faculty mentor to the Emory Global Health Institute's Student Advisory Committee and has been a key player in the development of the Emory Global Health Case Competition.
