John Mark, MD

Dr. Mark joined the Pediatric Pulmonary division at the University of Arizona in July 2001. He then moved to Stanford University, where he is still active in the Pediatric Pulmonary Center as an adjunct faculty member at the UA. His training started by completing  a pediatric pulmonary fellowship at the University at Rochester, Rochester, New York in 1984. He then moved to California where he worked with various pediatric pulmonary groups including the pulmonary sections of the University of California, Davis, University of California, San Francisco  and Lucile Packard Children's Hospital, Stanford. He completed the first NIH sponsored Pediatric Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) research  fellowship at the University of Arizona in 1999. During this fellowship, he investigated various alternative therapies in the treatment of childhood illnesses. Dr. Mark continues to use this training in the clinical research of CAM in pediatric lung disease, primarily the effect of guided imagery and visualization in  asthma and cystic fibrosis using airway inflammation as an outcome variable.
