Amid a busy residency schedule, Dr. Berry invested time in sports medicine by participating in sports coverage, training rooms, and sports physicals at several Houston area high schools and Texas Southern University. She also helped to develop a workshop
geared toward the general pediatrician focused on common sports medicine complaints seen in primary care. Additionally, she had the opportunity to present a poster presentation entitled The Drummer’s Wrist Pain at the 2020 American Medical Society

she hopes further her understanding in how to address complex social and health issues that can impact overall athletic performance. She also has interests in overuse injuries and prevention, sports nutrition, and diagnostic and therapeutic musculoskeletal
