    Clinical Expertise

    Rosalynn was inspired to provide great asthma care and management from her own experience growing up with asthma and being uninsured. She is fortunate that her role model who inspired her also took great care of her, Dr. Louis Mendelson. Her interests include global health issues and participating in foreign health care missions. Her first health mission in college was to the Dominican Republic. Since then she has participated in other missions to Guatemala, Panama, Nicaragua, and Colombia. She enjoys teaching Nursing and Nurse Practitioner students.
