We are actively expanding the scope and reach of services available for children so they can receive the highest quality of care as close to home as possible. We have recently recruited pediatric specialists in the following areas:
Which has also greatly enhanced our ability to meet our education mission. We are also developing a Pediatric Global Health program to provide international and cross cultural experiences to our learners and faculty. Bringing together the strengths of a community-oriented University and Niswonger Children’s hospital allows us to support outstanding educational programs and to develop a comprehensive system of care for all children. I personally invite you to join us in making a difference in the lives of children in Appalachia.
With Kindest Regards,
