Personal Statement

As a pediatrician, I have the unique opportunity of caring for late preterm and term newborns. Being part of the team that takes care of newborns to offer them a healthy start in life and working with the families to provide them with tools that assists them with caring for their babies is very rewarding.

In addition to patient care, my interests include the education of the healthcare team and promoting a multidisciplinary approach to patient care as a way to lead to the best patient outcomes.
