Biography

As a co-director of the REACH Program at Children’sMedical Center Dallas my clinical responsibilities center around the medical evaluation of children with suspected child abuse and neglect. I perform inpatient and outpatient medical evaluations of children to help determine if their injuries are the result of child maltreatment. In this role I also collaborate with local agencies to ensure the safety of child victims. The REACH team also functions to educate medical professionals and the community on child maltreatment issues.
