This faculty team of pediatric specialists also has expertise in global health and provides preventive care and treatment for travel-associated infection.

Other clinical sites include IU Health North Hospital and IU Health Arnett Hospital in Lafayette.

This pediatric faculty team conducts in-depth programs in infection prevention and anti-microbial stewardship to ensure that patients are protected from infection and to decrease the risks of anti-microbial drug resistance, a growing problem in infectious diseases. Through collaborative efforts for vaccine usage and treatment guidelines, community education and infectious disease prevention education, these specialists continually advocate for children’s health.
