Dr. Portman is the Director of Pediatric Cardiovascular Research at Children’s Hospital, and professor in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Washington School of Medicine. He is attending physician at Seattle Children’s Heart Center and the Cardiology Clinic at Providence Everett Medical Center. One of his areas of research is Kawasaki Disease, which is an inflammatory syndrome attacking coronary arteries in children.
Now, Dr. Portman is studying the effects of COVID-19 on children, which has been compared to Kawaski Disease. He is currently conducting two studies that will help Children’s Hospital and the medical world better understand how to help youngsters battling this multi-inflammatory syndrome that has already harmed and killed numerous children. Please give a warm welcome Dr. Michael Portman.
