Every day, I strive to walk alongside my patients in their personal health journeys to maximize their quality of life and function. My goal, this November, is to run on behalf of those who can't, and to support research that can help identify better treatments for my patients. While running 26.2 miles isn’t easy, I am inspired by the caregivers and patients who tackle much harder obstacles each day.
