Are Pregnant Women at a Higher Risk for Coronavirus? Short Answer: We Don’t Know

The Boston Globe 3/16/2020

While early in my career I have mentored residents and fellows both in my division as well as outside. There are numerous areas where pregnancy crosses into other fields including pharmacology, nephrology, cardiology and infectious disease. I am eager to both partner with other investigators as well as provide extra-disciplinary mentorship on projects that touch on key components of women's health.

I am also happy to discuss work/life integration. As a woman who started a family during residency at BMC and maintains a commute from a home well outside of Boston for the sake of the community prized by my husband and kids I am constantly reflecting on integration and defining balance.
