Daniel grew up in Bradenton, Florida and recently moved to Pittsburgh.
“Since being in Pittsburgh, I have
been struck by the ways in which this city is a microcosm of much of the United States. While I am with patients, I see and hear stories of how the lived experience in Pittsburgh
differs for many depending on numerous factors. While there are seemingly endless opportunities in this city and so much potential for growth, there remain significant barriers
to harnessing this energy to benefit everyone in an
equitable way. I look forward to serving on the Next Generation Council to help define and work through these complex issues so that Pittsburgh can be regarded as a premier location for all, locals and newcomers alike.”
Daniel’s vision for DEI in the Pittsburgh region is “Fostering a more collaborative, connected, and interdisciplinary environment grounded in healing and liberation.”
When asked to share a fun fact, Daniel stated, “I am an avid cook and baker, and also enjoy making ice cream when I have free time.”
Daniel received his undergraduate degree at Saint Leo University, and attended medical school at the University of Miami.
