Informazione su di me

I am a pediatric hospitalist (inpatient pediatrician) based in Atlanta, but I am originally from the Northeast (metro NYC and Philadelphia). 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.
