Director, Branford College Health Careers Mentoring Program
I am a Yale ‘96 grad. I returned to campus in 2008 to take a job as faculty in the medical school. I attended medical school at Columbia, trained in pediatrics at Mount Sinai Medical Center (NY) and pediatric emergency medicine at Children’s National Medical Center (DC). Since returning I have been involved with Branford College- in 2009, I started the BR Health Careers Mentoring Program, to match interested BR undergrads with faculty involved in health care. And now I’m excited to live in the college.
My true passion is global health, especially emergency care for children in the developing world. I recently received a Fulbright grant to travel to Malawi for 6 months and start a system to collect information on injured children who come to one of the country’s biggest hospitals. My interests continue to take me around the world to speak at international emergency medicine and pediatrics conferences and develop quality improvement projects with pediatric emergency centers.
