Meet Peggy Duwa! I have worked in my current position in the division of Critical Care since it’s inception in 1994. I handle the divisional matters and assist the physicians and NP’s with their needs. I’ve been in the Department of Pediatrics since December, 1986, and employed at the university since 1980. Between 1986-1994 I also held pediatric positions in Speech and Hearing, Gastroenterology, and Psychology. I helped recruit Dr. Warren Bishop for faculty, and Dr. Aliye Uc for GI fellowship during my earlier years.
Tom and I have been married 37 years. He is retired after 38 years with the federal government. We have 2 children, a son-in-law, 3 grandchildren, and are excited about expanding our family next fall, adding a daughter-in-law and her 3 children.
I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, and love to sew and craft. I love to read anything by Stephen King and John Grisham, and watching scary movies. I cheer for the Iowa Hawkeyes, St. Louis Cardinals, and Big10 Football. I love to sew and craft, and because of my love for working with my hands, my dream job would be to make a living off my handmade wares.
