I am a recent graduate from the College of Medicine at the University of Arizona. I was looking for an experience this year that could help with my professional development; AZLEND seems to be the perfect match. I am a military spouse, my husband is in the Air Force and we have a one year old son. Currently I am enjoying being a mom and a wife and I am applying to residency programs throughout the Southwest. I am excited about being a LEND fellow and experiencing research opportunities, personal growth and the chance to learn and collaborate with other disciplines associated with the health and well-being of children and families throughout Arizona.
