About meI am a pediatric hospitalist (inpatient pediatrician) based in Atlanta, but I am originally from the Northeast (northern New Jersey and suburban Philadelphia). I primarily enjoy world literature, including literature written by immigrants to North America and Europe, and nonfictional and fictional works about medicine.

I'm participating in the 75 Books Challenge and Club Read again this year. I created the Booker Prize group in 2011, and I plan to read all of the longlisted novels in 2015.
