Personal Interests

Volunteer Activities
I volunteer my time serving as an elected member of the Colorado Medicaid Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee to improve medication safety for all Colorado children.

Public Speaking
Yes
I enjoy speaking about the topics of 1) pediatric pharmacoepidemiology and drug safety and 2) the clinical care of epidermolysis bullosa (EB) patients.
