Currently, I oversee all outpatient pediatric infectious disease (ID) clinics and also frequently see children admitted to UNC Hospitals with challenging infections. I enjoy the opportunities to assist with the diagnosis and management of a childs infections as well as to help parents and children gain a greater understanding of their illness. I direct the UNC Pediatric and Adolescent Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) Program, which provides care for infants, children and adolescents who are HIV-infected or HIV-exposed. My other passion is medical education; I teach throughout the medical school, and I serve as director of the Pediatric Infectious Disease Fellowship Program. My research interests mainly focus on HIV quality improvement and medical education.
