Biography

Dr. Schuh is an internationally recognized investigator in optimizing management of acute respiratory illnesses in children, such as acute asthma, bronchiolitis, and croup.

Her national and international research aims to generate new evidence for the best treatment of refractory severe acute asthma and for minimizing unnecessary use of technology and non-beneficial interventions in bronchiolitis. She has mentored numerous academic emergency department fellows in clinical research who now serve in various academic posts around the world.
