Personal Statement

My clinical interests include working with children with various blood disorders, such as sickle cell anemia, blood clotting disorders, and rare disorders called Myeloproliferative Neoplasms. I find it a privilege to be able to help families deal with their children's complex medical issues. By combining excellent, compassionate medical care with research aimed at improving outcomes and preventing disease-associated complications, I believe that we can make a difference for children with cancer and blood disorders.
