I also serve on the Physician Wellness committee and we are bringing training programs to help with stress management and resiliency training for physicians.

I looked at physiologic stability in preterm infants relating to cerebral oxygen levels. I correlated cerebral oxygenation with short term neuromotor outcomes. Most recently, I have studied the national trends in medication use for seizure treatment in neonates.[Shorten text]
