Philosophy of Care 

Nutrition in early childhood provides an important foundation for lifelong health.   I am passionate about improving the nutrition and health of children in multiple ways: by treating patients in my clinic, by researching ways to improve childhood nutrition, and by teaching doctors in training to recognize and treat nutrition-related conditions.
