Personal Statement

I am very fortunate to work in the field of adolescent medicine in an academic setting.  I have the wonderful opportunity to take care of patients, and am also able to engage in resident and medical student teaching, as well as be involved in various research activities in my field. Caring for teenagers as they move from childhood to adulthood is extremely rewarding, and is it a privilege to be part of a very talented interdisciplinary team of pediatric providers.
