Biography

~ I have worked for 10 years in a tertiary care hospital-based pediatric primary care setting, and 20 years in a small private pediatric primary care setting. I am interested in evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of each setting as pediatric primary care adapts to the changing health care system environment.

~ I am concerned about the effects of our culture of violence, particularly gun violence, on the health, behavior and development of children in the US. I would like to find effective ways for pediatricians to engage this topic in individual patient and family encounters, and in broader ways as advocates for children.

Research

~ Effects of changes in the health care system, and varying health insurance products, on the utilization and quality of health care for children.
~ Effects of our culture of violence on the health, behavior and development of children.
~ Gun violence in the US, with international comparisons
