My Biography & Research


I specialize in pediatric emergency medicine and global health. All children, especially those from underserved populations, deserve the best care that we can offer. I became interested in medicine through my relationship with my uncle, Dr. William Schubert.

My area of interest in research is global health education. I have a passion for underserved populations and want to determine the best methods to educate the clinicians who serve them. I accomplish this in part through my role as director of Urban Underserved and Global Health at the University of Cincinnati (UC) College of Medicine, Department of Family and Community Medicine, where I interact with faculty and students. Another interest I have is in the well-being of those who practice global health.

I am a recipient of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Humanitarian Award, the Cincinnati Children’s Leonard Tow Humanism in Medicine Award at the UC College of Medicine, the Michael Shannon Humanitarian Award and the 2020 Education Award from the American Academy of Pediatrics. I’m board-certified in Pediatrics (1987), Pediatric Emergency Medicine (1996) and Clinical Tropical Medicine (2010).

Much of my research has been published in respected journals, such as Paediatrics and International Child Health, Pediatrics, Academic Pediatrics, Academic Medicine, BMJ Open Respiratory Research and the Journal of Evidence-Based Integrative Medicine.
