Associate Director, NRSA Primary Care Research Fellowship in Child and Adolescent Health
Research Director, Cincinnati Pediatric Research Group
Attending Physician, Hospital Medicine
Associate Professor, UC Department of Pediatrics
Dr. Brinkman researches shared decision-making between patients/parents and clinicians to promote high value care that is evidence-based and family-centered. He led a team to develop a shared decision-making intervention for ADHD treatment. Parents became better informed and more involved in decisions without increasing visit length. He is currently collaborating on grant-funded research to facilitate shared decision making in the care of families facing decisions about Human Papilloma Virus Vaccination and those facing decisions about treatment for juvenile idiopathic arthritis.
Dr. Brinkman serves as the physician lead for the James M. Anderson Center Rapid Evidence Adoption to improve Child Health (REACH) team. In this role, he is building an infrastructure to support shared decision-making throughout Cincinnati Children's. He also serves as associate director of the NRSA Primary Care Research Fellowship in Child and Adolescent Health, and the research director for the Cincinnati Pediatric Research Group, a practice-based research network.

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
Jeff Epstein, PhD, is a professor of pediatrics in Behavioral Medicine and Clinical Psychology at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. He earned his doctorate in clinical psychology from State University of New York at Stony Brook and completed a clinical internship at the Medical University of South Carolina.
Dr. Epstein is a licensed psychologist whose research and clinical work focus on the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD and other psychological disorders originating in childhood.
He is a co-investigator on the Multimodal Treatment Study of Children with ADHD (MTA). Dr. Epstein has published numerous empirical papers on a variety of ADHD-related topics. Much of his empirical research has concentrated on the neuropsychology of ADHD, and the promotion of evidence-based ADHD care among community pediatricians.

Tanya Elizabeth Froehlich, MD, MS, FAAP
Dr. Froehlich is a developmental-behavioral pediatrician who cares for school age children with learning and behavioral issues. Her research has a special focus on attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and approaches the disorder from the vantage points of epidemiology, etiology, and treatment. She conducted a study reporting the national prevalence of ADHD in U.S. children based on DSM-IV criteria (published in the Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine) which showed that children from disadvantaged socioeconomic backgrounds were most likely to meet criteria for ADHD, yet least likely to receive consistent ADHD pharmacotherapy. Interested in understanding why certain children (including those with low socioeconomic status) may be more vulnerable to ADHD than others, she also studies the contribution of environmental exposures to ADHD and their public health impact. In Pediatrics, she published the first study to investigate the interactive effects of prenatal tobacco exposure and childhood lead exposure on ADHD and demonstrated that the association between poverty and ADHD is partially explained by the effects of these common environmental toxicants. She has also examined possible gene-environment interactions and found that boys with specific dopamine-related genetic variants were particularly susceptible to the adverse effects of lead exposure on ADHD-related executive functioning (published in Biological Psychiatry). Dr. Froehlich continues to research environmental influences on ADHD as a co-investigator on a National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences R01 grant which is examining the effects of pyrethroid pesticide exposure on ADHD symptoms and executive functioning.
Dr. Froehlich’s research agenda also addresses ADHD treatment. She is the recipient of a National Institute of Mental Health K23 Award aimed at identifying genetic and phenotypic predictors of ADHD medication response. Recently, she authored a paper in the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry showing that individuals with the dopamine receptor D4 and dopamine transporter genotypes believed to confer lower susceptibility to ADHD had greater improvement in their hyperactive-impulsive symptoms with methylphenidate treatment than those with the “high risk” genetic variants. She also coauthored a study on a novel genotyping assay for carboxylesterase 1 (CES1), the enzyme which metabolizes methylphenidate, and is currently undertaking a study on CES1 genetic variants’ effects on methylphenidate response.
Dr. Froehlich also enhances care for children with ADHD through teaching and other professional activities. She has served as an invited speaker providing seminars for professionals and workshops for families in international, national, and regional forums. Currently, Dr. Froehlich co-chairs the Society for Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics ADHD Special Interest Group, and coordinates ADHD-related projects and educational seminars for the Society membership in this capacity.
