Kawasaki Disease • Juvenile Arthritis • Rheumatic Diseases

Research Focus

My research focuses on the outcomes of Kawasaki Disease and Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA). I am involved in 2 panCanadian research groups - ReACCh-Out (studies the outcomes of JIA) and the STOPP Consortium (studies the bone health of children with chronic diseases on corticosteroids). I am also presently studying the prevalence of Pediatric Rheumatic Diseases in East Africa.
