Brief Bio
Dr. Iglesia earned his medical degree at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. He completed a combined internal medicine and pediatrics residency at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. He subsequently completed an additional residency in preventive medicine at the University of North Carolina Hospitals, during which he earned his MPH at the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health. His interest in food allergy prevention led him to additional clinical training in UNC Hospital's allergy/immunology fellowship and in the Duke-UNC T32 research training program in allergy and clinical immunology. With a secondary appointment in pediatrics, Dr. Iglesia will be training in the Learnings Health Systems Scholars Program K12 with a focus on population and public health approaches to prevention of food allergy and other allergic conditions.
