My goal is to help children, especially young athletes, understand the relationship between what they eat and how they feel and perform on and off the field. I hope they carry these lessons with them long after their years of playing sports have ended. I am also passionate about childhood nutrition in general, and hope to serve as a role model and make even a small contribution to help with the childhood obesity epidemic in this country. My second goal is to spread the word and create awareness about the problem with teen over-the-counter and prescription drug abuse in our area. As a pediatrician, I hope to help educate teens, parents and other physicians on this important subject.
