Scholz receives Friend of Pediatrics Award

Tom Scholz, MD, pediatric cardiologist at University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital, has been awarded a Friend of Pediatrics Award by Medial Associates Pediatrics in Dubuque, Iowa. Scholz has traveled to Dubuque for six years to provide pediatric cardiology care for children and families in the area.

The award is given annually to someone outside Medical Associates Pediatrics who “makes a difference to our department and to the patients we serve,” according to Doug Olk, MD, of the Dubuque clinic.

“I truly enjoy caring for kids and families in Dubuque, so I’m especially honored that the primary care providers appreciate the care I provide and feel it is positively impacting the community,” Scholz says.

The award was presented on Jan. 13.
