    Collapse Overview
    Dr. McGarry is a Pediatric Pulmonologist who researches cystic fibrosis. Her main focus is researching health disparities in cystic fibrosis, particularly in minorities. She is conducting a cohort study of lung function in Latinos/Hispanics with cystic fibrosis. She also does research in diversity in clinical trials in cystic fibrosis.

    Dr. McGarry studied Biology at Whitworth College. She then attended University of Washington School of Medicine, working in many underserved regions from Alaska to Zambia. She completed her Pediatric residency at Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital. She completed her Pediatric Pulmonary and Pediatric Clinical Pharmacology Fellowships at University of California San Francisco. She also completed her Masters in Clinical Research at University of California San Francisco.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
