Dr. Pang, who grew near Chicago, majored in neuroscience at Amherst College because she wanted to learn about how the cells in our nervous system affect who we are and how we behave. Upon graduation, she worked as a lab technician in a cancer cell biology laboratory, performing experiments that showed how cancer cells respond to chemotherapy drugs. During this time, Dr. Pang learned that, although such work would help cancer patients, she preferred to help patients by interacting with them face to face. During her time in medical school, she elected to focus on pediatrics because she found herself smiling and laughing with kids because they are so hopeful and curious, even when they are having a bad day. She eventually gravitated towards critical care medicine because she enjoyed the scientific rigor and clinical vigilance required to take care of the sickest kids in need of immediate medical attention and around-the-clock monitoring. Dr. Pang also feels reward in guiding and supporting families in crisis and believes the resilience of both her patients and their families motivates her to provide the best care in all situations.
