Meet Lawrence Ross, MD

Question has been raised is to who I am? And I am a Dad. Number 1, number 2 and number 3. After that I am also a specialist in pediatric infectious diseases, and I have been so for like 20 years in the children hospital in Los Angeles, and Keck School of medicine of USC. And in that role my job has been to learn, teach and take care of patients, who have infections of all kinds. And I love that role. It's given me an opportunity to work with children which is obviously is the fun of anything in the world. And I have had an opportunity to meet some incredible people. And around the world, and that's generally it’s my major interest is in travelling around the world, and experiencing what cultures are like, what healthcare is like. And one of our projects has been to help improve the healthcare in Mongolia. And I am available if anybody would like to learn about that. And finally I am a presports skier. I am a mediocre runner. And I have a very good taste in wine, if your pain, Thank you.
