My primary clinical and research interest focus is on sickle cell disease. Past efforts have focused on improving the care of patients with sickle cell disease through quality improvement initiatives such as improving time to antibiotics in children with SCD presenting with fevers as well as improving delivery of analgesia in the ED setting. As a Hispanic female physician, it is an honor and, indeed part of my mission as an academic physician, to serve as a mentor and sponsor to trainees, particularly those from backgrounds historically marginalized, underserved and underrepresented in medicine.
