My passion is developing innovative approaches to promote adolescent health. Today’s adolescents live in a highly technological society. Each day they are faced with decisions on how to balance relationships, influences and experiences both online and offline. I feel fortunate to work with amazing clinical colleagues and a dynamic research team to help teens through these challenges, and consider ways in which technology may provide new venues for education, support and care of our adolescent patients.”
