Sobre mi

I am a pediatric hospitalist (inpatient pediatrician) formerly based in Atlanta, but in late 2021 I resigned my position in order to serve as my mother's primary caregiver after the death of my father, and moved back to the Philadelphia area. I primarily enjoy world literature, including literature written by immigrants to North America and Europe, and nonfictional and fictional works about medicine, along with fiction, non-fiction and poetry written by authors of color.

I am participating in Club Read again this year. I'm also the administrator of the Booker Prize group.
