Dr. Wargo's commitment has always been to advance the understanding and treatment of disease through science. Early in her career, she enrolled in nursing school to gain a fundamental insight into disease and its effect on people. Excited by what she learned, she pursued a bachelor's degree in biology. She then entered medical school at the Medical College of Pennsylvania, and developed an interest in the immunologic aspects of disease. She graduated from medical school in 1998 and declared her intent to pursue a career in academic surgery.
