Dr. Bennett is the mother of two. Her son is a Petroleum Engineer and her daughter is currently at the University of Alabama. Her daughter is what spearheaded this research. While in high school she became ill. Over 2 years she had several unnecessary surgeries, several heart attacks, saw over 40 specialists, was dismissed from care more times than most people see doctors in a lifetime and was finally diagnosed with a genetic disorder that causes systemic inflammation. What was learned from the experience, we didn't know enough about our children's baseline normals. Normal reference ranges on this demographic aren't established from healthy children but rather from children that had testing done while sick with the result of the test being considered normal. Dr. Bennett set out to change that and help the next parent and child.
Dr. Bennett contributes her time to perform the exams and is the Researcher the IRB is under.
