“During my fourth year of medical school at Albany Medical College, I did my student rotation with the Pediatric Infectious Disease Division Chief Dr. Debra Tristram, and that solidified my desire to pursue pediatric infectious disease,” said Dr. Daniel. “It’s exciting to be back at Albany Medical Center, but this time as Dr. Tristram’s junior colleague. I wouldn’t want to do anything else, anywhere else!”
