During her fellowship, Dr. Kazaryan initiated and conducted a quality improvement project in Lupus at Mount Sinai Hospital. During the pandemic, as an attending physician at UCSF Fresno, she piloted a study titled COVID19 in patients with Vitamin D Deficiency (COVIDD). This topic sparked the interest of many and she was asked to be a guest speaker for local and statewide news agencies.
