Clinical/Research Interests

Imaging in inflammatory bowel disease, particularly use of ultrasound for the evaluation of Crohns disease. Kerri's main interest is developing US skills by gastroenterology, to be used in an outpatient program to monitor IBD.

In addition, she is the medical lead in the Division Central Triage, and has interest in developing novel and effective ways to deliver general, luminal GI clinical care, given increasing wait times and resource limitations. Currently, she is leading a number of nurse-based pathways, some of which collaborate closely with primary care.

Kerri also is the primary developer of the website content. Questions or comments can go directly to her knovak@ucalgary.ca

Most importantly, her primary interest is her family - she has 2 daughters age 5 and 4.
