Personal profile

Research Interests

My research interests include health care for adolescents experiencing gender dysphoria, HIV prevention and treatment, LGBT health disparities, and health care for high risk youth populations.

My clinical work includes adolescent primary care, health care for transgender and gender nonconforming adolescents, adolescent HIV care, gynecology and reproductive health.

I am the Clinical Practice Director of the Division of Adolescent and Young Adult Medicine, the Medical Director of the Gender Development Program and an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. After completing pediatrics residency at Johns Hopkins Children's Center and fellowship in Adolescent Medicine at Children's Hospital Los Angeles, I joined the faculty at Lurie Children's Hospital in 2013. My interests include improving care for gender diverse youth and young adults (specifically those experiencing gender dysphoria), adolescent HIV prevention and treatment, and health care for homeless adolescents.
