    Biography

    Andrew Hershey, MD, PhD, FAHS, received his undergraduate degree at the University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa. He earned an honors degree in biochemistry; his research involved the enzyme kinetic properties of alcohol dehydrogenase in yeast.

    After undergraduate school, Dr. Hershey attended the MD/PhD program at Washington University, St. Louis, Missouri. His PhD research thesis was entitled: "The Rat Substance P Receptor: cDNA and Genomic Cloning, Functional Expression, mRNA Distribution, and Mutational Analysis of Desensitization Responses."

    After earning his MD and PhD, Dr. Hershey was an intern and resident in pediatrics at St. Louis Children's Hospital, St. Louis, MO. He then was an adult neurology resident at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, St. Louis, MO, followed by his child neurology fellowship at St. Louis Children's Hospital, St. Louis, MO.

    After his fellowship, Dr. Hershey joined the faculty at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, Ohio, where he is director of the Headache Center.

    Biography

    David Neal Franz, MD, was born and raised in Dayton, Ohio. He received his undergraduate degree in history and literature from Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana.

    After completing his training, he served as assistant professor of neurology and pediatrics at Wright State University before returning to Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center.

    He established the Cincinnati Tuberous Sclerosis Clinic in 1993, to assist in the medical care of patients who have or are suspected of having tuberous sclerosis. The purpose of the clinic is not to replace care from the child's pediatrician or family physician, but to assist the primary care physician in dealing with those aspects unique to tuberous sclerosis that affect the child's health or development. The basis of the clinic is the realization that people with tuberous sclerosis are different from other individuals who have epilepsy, learning disabilities, behavior problems, etc.

    For too long, the unique problems found in this disease have been lumped together with similar disorders, despite the fact that research has shown that disorders of the brain, heart, kidney, and other organs in tuberous sclerosis are quite different.

    Biography

    Marielle Kabbouche, MD, received her training in child neurology at Vanderbilt University school of medicine. She moved to Cincinnati for a specialty training in pediatric headache medicine. The position was the first for a pediatric neurologist.

    After her headache training she stayed at Cincinnati Children's as faculty and active member of the center with involvement in all academic as well as clinical and teaching aspect of pediatric headache. Since that time she has been proud to be part of the maturing center that gradually developed to be the largest and most academically productive pediatric headache program in the United States and worldwide. She has been a co- PI on multiple NIH grants since 2002 and has been involved in multiple pharmaceutical and clinical studies in pediatric and adolescent migraine.

    Her carrier has been focused on acute treatment of intractable migraine in children in emergency room as well as inpatient settings.

    As the director of the inpatient headache unit, Dr. Kabbouche was actively involved in setting an acute headache infusion center as well as an inpatient headache unit at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. The headache acute care unit has been very productive in the last few years and seeing about 200-300 patients/year during peak seasons. The inpatient unit will open in July of 2011 bringing specialty care to the headache patients with a team of six providers, fellows, residents and nurses. This approach to intractable headache care will have a great impact on patient’s outcome.

    Dr. Kabbouche has over 25 publications, and a track record of numerous peer-reviewed papers, reviews, and abstracts in the field of headache medicine, book chapters as well as being an editor of a pediatric headache book.

    Biography

    Jennifer Vannest, PhD, completed her undergraduate education at the Ohio State University and continued there for her graduate work. Her PhD is in linguistics, and in addition, her graduate training included a number of courses in cognitive psychology, neuropsychology and speech and hearing sciences. As a postdoctoral fellow at University of Michigan and University of Rochester, Dr. Vannest was trained to use functional MRI to study the brain mechanisms underlying language skill.

    Dr. Vannest came to Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center in 2006, and her current research makes use of functional MRI to examine how epilepsy and neurodevelopmental disorders affect language function, ultimately leading to better treatment and educational strategies for children with these disorders.

    Biography

    After medical school, Brenda Wong, MD, received training in general pediatrics and worked as a pediatrician for a few years before doing her three-year child neurology fellowship at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center.

    Dr. Wong also received training in pediatric neuromuscular disorders at Hammersmith Hospital, London with Dr. Victor Dubowitz and Dr. Francesco Muntoni. Dr. Wong's training in EMGs was accomplished with Dr. John Quinlan in the Department of Neurology at University of Cincinnati.

    Post fellowship training, Dr. Wong was practicing child neurology in private practice prior to joining Cincinnati Children's in 1999.

    Besides general neurology patients, Dr. Wong sees patients with neuromuscular disorders in the Neuromuscular Clinic and provide diagnostic services like EMGs and evaluation for muscle biopsies. Comprehensive management is supported by the Division of Rehabilitative Medicine, Pulmonary Medicine, Pediatric Orthopedics and the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
