My goal as a maternal-fetal medicine specialist is to 1) discover answers to clinical questions that affect women everywhere, 2) use that information to inform the care of my patients, and 3) to continuously disseminate that information to my patients, my colleagues, my trainees, and the general public in an accessible manner. I am honored to serve on the advisory board of Verywell.
