Meet our team
Our team includes a diverse group of pediatric clinicians and people who care about, and care for, kids with backgrounds in infectious diseases, vaccines, public health, and scientific communications. We have one very young helper, Rosalind, and a student volunteer, JT. This is truly a collective effort with team members from across UMB campuses and collaborators from downtown, midtown, and Frederick. We have received feedback, documents, and website suggestions from colleagues in the field and are grateful for the continued input, resources, and expertise.
