Bio statement

Currently, I serve as the director of global education of outreach for the radiology department at CHOP and the Outreach lead of the World Federation of Pediatric Imaging and coordinate additional educational projects and teleradiology services for partners throughout the world. As a pediatric radiologist, I have also participated in educational pediatric radiology projects in Haiti, Ghana and Ethiopia among others. In the past, I practiced medicine in Venezuela and later as an emergency response physician with Doctors without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) in Liberia, Sudan, Angola, Pakistan and Yemen from 2002 to 2009.

Recent global health projects

Through the department of radiology at CHOP, we support a pediatric radiology fellowship and pediatric radiology training as well as research support to residents at Black Lion Hospital in Addis Ababa. I continue to provide teleradiology services for Doctors without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) and the World Federation of Pediatric imaging, consulting in over 600 cases in the last 3 years
