    Collapse Overview
    I am a general pediatrician and health services researcher focused on improving the prevention and treatment of childhood obesity in safety-net clinical settings. In my research, I use both qualitative and quantitative methodologies to develop and test clinical interventions and to better understand the factors that contribute to disparities in children's cardiometabolic health.
