Neonatal Second-year Fellow
Dr. Kalluri completed her pediatric residency in the Boston Combined Residency Program, Urban Health & Advocacy Track. She received her undergraduate degree in Biomedical Engineering from Tufts University, and her medical degree from Boston University. During residency, she examined the role of maternal primary language on preterm infant outcomes and found that non-English language status is associated with increased infant morbidities; this work was accepted to Pediatric Academic Societies in 2020. She was awarded an American Academy of Pediatrics research grant to examine the relationship between language status and parental participation in NICU care. She would like to continue pursuing clinical research and quality improvement training, to understand and create interventions to reduce disparities, address social determinants of health, and empower underserved families.
