Pediatric resident Lori Prakash, MD, has recently accepted a position at UCLA (main campus) to be a pediatric hospitalist, joining Dr. Kelly Vasant as the second resident to be joining UCLA as a hospitalist.
A graduate of Western University of Health Sciences, Dr. Prakash became a resident at Harbor Pediatrics in 2011. She's made many memories and life-long friendships. When asked what her most memorable moments have been, she said saying goodbye to her Continuity Care Clinic patients whom she has known for up to three years. "It is incredible how lucky we are to be a part of their lives and watch them grow. I never realized how close I had become to my patients and their families. It's what I love about pediatrics!"
