Likes About Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC

My family and I are thrilled to be back in Pittsburgh, home of the Steeler Nation. The new Children's Hospital in Lawrenceville is a wonderful place to work, learn, and enjoy. UPMC is home to one of the world's oldest and extensive networks of liver researchers and clinicians, and I feel fortunate to train with such a great group of teachers and mentors.
