Resident Teams Receive CATCH Grants from the AAP

Two AAP CATCH grants were awarded to resident teams recently. This is a national, competitive process through the AAP to encourage pediatricians to collaborate within their communities to advance Child Health initiatives.  Of the 18 proposals awarded nationally, two were right here in our program!  The teams will have up to $2000 awarded to advance their initiatives.

  • A Healthy Hawkeye Smiles project will be lead by Drs. Rachel Segal and Michael Cole (PL2’s) and Elizabeth Wilkinson (pediatric dental resident), with mentoring provided by Dr. Jody Murph.
