Professional Bio

The committees, boards, research teams, and organizations I have worked with have focused my attention on the critical goal of helping medical providers improve the lives and health of children with hearing loss and other chronic health conditions. The General Academic Pediatrics Fellowship curriculum provides training in research and professional mentoring to foster expertise in cultural, societal, community, and system factors affecting the quality of care and health outcomes of vulnerable populations. Rochester's large Deaf community provides an excellent local population to engage in clinical research, and I have found opportunities for collaboration with centers at URMC such as the National Center for Deaf Health Research in the Department of Preventive Medicine and the Deaf Wellness Center, as well as the National Technical Institute for the Deaf at the Rochester Institute of Technology.

Each of these institutions provides opportunities for broader implementation of my research on vulnerable children with hearing loss through collaboration on research projects and program development. I am honing my research skills and positioning myself to become a national leader in caring for the health of children with hearing loss and other chronic medical conditions.
