"Severe illness or injury is a devastating, often unanticipated event in the life of a child and their family. The tenacity, strength, resilience, and love demonstrated by the children, their family members, and care providers during these difficult times truly inspire me. I am driven each day, in both my clinical and research efforts, by a desire to improve the outcome for each child."
