I serve as the Chief of Nemours Children's Hospital's Division of General Academic Pediatrics and Hospital Medicine, as well as direct a multidisciplinary weight management program focusing on the medical, nutritional, and psychosocial care of children with obesity. Caring for children with health consequences from their obesity motivates me to work towards prevention. I also direct Nemours Florida Prevention Initiative, which sponsors community outreach projects to help young children grow up healthy and ready to learn. I’ve authored and contributed to several manuscripts, presentations, and abstracts related to how patient care delivery can be improved, as well as efforts to promote healthy lifestyle changes. I’ve served on professional societies' boards and committees and have academic appointments with University of Central Florida, Florida State University, and University of South Florida. I also lead the Nemours Maintenance of Certification program, part of the Office of Quality and Safety, and contribute to projects promoting effective clinical decision-making.
