About

Specialties:

I am a mother, a pediatrician, a community volunteer, a writer, and an advocate to insure a high-quality, sustainable healthcare system in America that will attract bright hardworking minds in the future.

I co-founded Practicing Physicians of America https://practicingphysician.org/ with cardiologist Westby Fisher (of MOC reform fame) in 2016. We have a fantastic diverse board, including Child Psychiatrist Brian Jamal Dixon, Pediatrician Niran Al Agba, and Breast surgeon Judith Thompson. I and PPA are true grassroots! I started this movement by expressing myself via speaking, writing, and advocating at state and national levels. I have no conflicts of interest and have not ever taken a speaking fee. As a member of The Pennsylvania Medical Society, I believe that grassroots collaborating with state societies and patient advocacy organizations is the path forward. I’m a real person and I make very real faux pas… including getting so intent on work that I end up running errands in public in my bathrobe (most of my writing happens in my robe!).
