Beyond this focus, she is committed to improving patient/caregiver health literacy, improving transitions of care, and fostering multi-disciplinary collaboration in the care of the multi-morbid population with chronic lung disease. She leads the core clinical faculty who precept the Fellows' Clinic at the Winchester Center for Lung Disease and is devoted to enriching the ambulatory pulmonary curriculum for the PCCSM fellows, residents and students.
