Dr. Siegel is a founding member and scientific co-chairman for the Pediatric Dermatology Research Alliance (PeDRA) to promote and discover better treatments for the pediatric dermatology conditions through research. In addition to practice of common pediatric dermatology conditions, Dr. Siegel also has an expertise in genetic skin syndromes. She is co‐director of the Neurofibromatosis and RASopathy clinic at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin and she works on the Medical Advisory Committee for the Costello Syndrome Family Network.
