In addition to his Sharecare duties, Dr. Roach is an associate professor of clinical medicine at Weill Medical College of Cornell University and an associate attending physician at New York-Presbyterian Hospital.
Board certified in internal medicine, Dr. Roach has a deep interest in disease prevention, cost-benefit analysis and geriatric health care. He has lectured widely, presented and published frequently, received many honors and contributed to several books. In addition to practicing medicine, he continues to teach one day a week at Weill Medical College of Cornell University, where he’s an award-winning physician/professor.
