About

Bio

I am a pediatric hospitalist and completed a fellowship in global pediatric healthcare delivery. During the fellowship I spent 12 months working with Partners in Health, an NGO, in St Marc, Haiti. My areas of interest include quality improvement and neonatal resuscitation/care in low-resource settings.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
