Natasha Halasa M.D., M.P.H.
Associate Professor of Pediatrics
Dr. Halasa's initial studies focused on antibiotic prescribing practices in different types of outpatient settings. She documented important trends in the types of antibiotics prescribed and discovered substantial differences in prescribing practices in community and university based settings. She also noted differences in prescribing practices based on race. These findings resulted in first-author publications in the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Journal and the Journal of Pediatrics and formed the basis of her M.P.H. thesis research.
