"I love the mix of medical, emotional, and spiritual issues that come up when working with people and families struggling with life-threatening illness. I work with a wonderful and diverse team of providers, oversee educational programs that encourage learners to see beyond the traditional medical model, and continue to grow myself in both emotional and intellectual domains. What could be more fulfilling?"


Neither Dr. Chittenden nor any member of her family has relevant financial relationships with any commercial interests.
