The Team MissionCare, Change, Cure.


MeetThe Team


Boston Children’s is a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School, where all of our physicians are also faculty. Our clinicians are also involved in research to improve our understanding of Kabuki syndrome and, we hope, discover new treatments.

The team speaks multiple languages including English, Italian, German, French and Mandarin. Interpreter services are available for other languages. In addition to the core team below, we work closely with specialists in cardiology, endocrinology, immunology, nephrology, nutrition and physical therapy to cover all the needs of our patients.
