Dr. Andrews teaches students and professionals of all levels who are interested in performing research activities; serves on dissertation committees and assists in translational research that links public health, basic science and clinical science approaches to research in novel and trending research areas.

Dr. Andrews collaborates with Steele Center physician-scientists in the areas of developmental and behavioral pediatrics, pediatric and adult congenital heart defects, Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy, adolescent medicine, and health disparities.
