Dr. Nicholas is a pediatric radiologist interested in optimizing the use of technology to more effectively educate clinicians and residents in resource-limited settings. In 2006, she spent a week in Nicaragua with a team teaching the basics of ultrasound to a group of local physicians. From 2007-2012, Dr. Nicholas worked as the medical imaging consultant for a privately funded clinic on the Mbirikani Group Ranch in Kenya. She helped introduce ultrasound to the clinic by training one of the clinicians, helping procure the machine, and spending six weeks on the ground at the clinic. In 2013, she became involved with radiology education in Haiti and has since visited Haiti multiple times to work closely with the residents there to develop a tablet-based radiology curriculum that can be used in Haiti and other resource-limited settings.
