    Collapse overview
    As an endocrinologist with dual board certification in pediatric and adult endocrinology, I am uniquely trained to manage and investigate endocrine diseases across the age spectrum. My current research targets quality improvement in transition of pediatric to adult diabetes care. I also participate in quality improvement projects as a part of the Cystic Fibrosis Quality Improvement Committee related to diabetes, bone health, and other pertinent endocrine disorders. As a part of my prior clinical research in the treatment of precocious puberty, I was effective in recruiting over 30 patients in a prospective clinic study looking at effectiveness of a single histrelin implant over two years in the treatment of central precocious puberty; therefore I am familiar with patient recruitment for prospective clinical studies. In addition, I have received formal training in clinical research design, basic statistical analysis, and presentation of results in my obtainment of a Masters in Clinical Research.
