Biography

As a general pediatrician, I am interested in providing high quality medical care for at-risk children and families. I am additionally interested in helping families identify strategies for succeeding in home management of chronic illnesses, such as asthma. Through this work, I hope to identify patient-centered approaches to clinical care and outpatient medication adherence that empower families and decrease preventable morbidity.

Research

1. Medication identification among caregivers and children dealing with chronic illness, and persistent asthma in particular
2. Preventable barriers to medication adherence in a population dealing with pediatric asthma
3. The impact of low health literacy on outpatient management of chronic disease (especially asthma)
4. The transition of medication management responsibility from caregiver to child among families dealing with persistent pediatric asthma.
