Current Allergy and Immunology Fellows

Sheva Chervinskiy, DO
Second Year Allergy/Immunology Fellow

I received my D.O. degree from the University of North Texas Health Science Center. Thereafter, I completed my Pediatric Residency at Arkansas Children's Hospital. During residency, my clinical experiences inspired me to pursue further training in Allergy and Immunology. I was drawn to this field for several reasons. Primarily, I enjoyed being able to provide specialty care and improve quality of life for people in all stages of life. Also, A/I is field in which basic and clinical research are so well blended with our clinical practice. I am particularly interested in the area of Food Allergy and chose this program because of the excellent food allergy research. I was drawn to the welcoming and supportive environment that fosters all interests and am thrilled to spend the next year participating in the stimulating food allergy research currently being carried out here at UNC. I feel that this is an exciting area of research which will greatly contribute to the safety and quality of life for our patients with food allergies.

Currently, I'm considering pursuing a career in academic medicine in a clinician educator track. In my free time, I enjoy hiking with my family on the gorgeous North Carolina trails and having tea parties with my little girls (3y and 1y)!


Allison Burbank, MD
Second Year Allergy/Immunology Fellow

I am originally from Arkansas, where I completed undergrad, medical school, and Internal Medicine/Pediatrics residency. Immunology has always interested me, and I spent two and a half years working in a basic science immunology lab in college. I was able to put these interests to use while in medical school and residency when I worked in the Allergy and Immunology clinics both at our university hospital and at Arkansas Children's Hospital. I am thrilled to be in this fellowship program, and I plan to pursue a career in academic medicine focusing on clinical/translational research. 

I went into medicine because I had wonderful mentorship all along the way. My pediatrician inspired me to pursue medicine, which combined my love of science with a desire to work closely with people. 

Outside of medicine, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and I love to travel. I also love going on walks and runs with my two dogs.


Aaron Kobernick, MD MPH
Second Year Allergy/Immunology Fellow

I completed medical school and Internal Medicine and Pediatric residency training at Tulane University School of Medicine.  After training, I practiced for four years as a National Health Service Corps Scholar on the Navajo Reservation, serving as Chief of Pediatrics for two of those years. I plan to return to the Navajo Reservation to further characterize and improve the care of asthmatic children after completing my Allergy/Immunology Fellowship. I chose to enter the field of allergy and immunology to improve the quality of life of our patients.  When I'm not in clinic, you can find me on my bike, out seeing live music, playing sports, or hanging with my lovely wife and three crazy kids.
