Dr. Chari is Assistant Professor Medicine, Hematology, and Medical Oncology. He served as an Assistant Professor of Medicine at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, where he founded and developed the multiple myeloma program and was also a member of the stem cell transplant program. He then joined the nationally renowned myeloma program at St Vincents Comprehensive Cancer Center prior to its transition to the Mount Sinai Medical Center. He is the principal investigator on several clinical trials. He has also given numerous lectures on plasma cell disorders and has served as a moderator and abstract reviewer for the American Society of Hematology in this field. He is the Mt Sinai representative on the Multiple Myeloma Research Consortium.

I'm excited about becoming increasingly involved in the myeloma community, as well as the "divorced moms" community. I hope to become more involved in survivors of alcoholism in the future. I like trying to make a difference in my own small way.
