Personal Statement

Growing up in an urban New York City neighborhood surrounded by family members with asthma and allergies made me keenly aware of how the immediate environment affected their symptoms. Environmental exposure to allergens, mold, air pollution, as well as as diet and physical activity, all play a role in asthma. These personal life experiences, combined with my training as a pediatric allergist and immunologist and clinical researcher, have led to my passionate interest in the effects of the environment and lifestyle on childhood asthma, and how the environment can influence a child’s immune system.  I find it fulfilling when I can directly impact a child’s quality of life.
