"I chose neonatology as a career because of the opportunity to make dramatic impacts in children's lives. I have the privilege of helping critically ill babies, who might otherwise die or suffer serious injuries, recover and lead long, healthy lives. I am particularly interested in helping young doctors become better physicians so they can provide the best care to the children they will see. This interest is focused in helping them learn how best to resuscitate newborn babies at the moment of birth, when they are particularly vulnerable."
