The adolescent support team is led by Dr. Nancy Dodson, a Board Certified physician in Pediatrics as well as Adolescent Medicine. Her clinical expertise includes a variety of adolescent health issues including eating disorders, reproductive health, contraception, menstrual/gynecologic disorders, and gender dysphoria.
