Reaching Milestone Inspires a Look Ahead

In celebration of the 100th birthday of the Rachford Department of Pediatrics at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and the University of Cincinnati, we are hosting a virtual speaker series entitled, “Envisioning Our Future For Children.”

The series begins with a widely respected leader in global health issues: Jim Yong Kim, MD, PhD.

In 1987, Kim co-founded the organization Partners In Health in partnership with Paul Farmer, Todd McCormack, Thomas White, and Ophelia Dahl.

The organization launched new, community-focused health care programs in Haiti that served hundreds of thousands of people. Kim’s work with Partners in Health is documented in the 2017 film Bending the Arc.

After leaving Partners in Health, Kim served as chair of the Department of Global Health and Social Medicine at Harvard University, president of Dartmouth College and president of the World Bank (2012-19).

A time to look ahead

Last year, Tina Cheng, MD, MPH, was named chair of the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, chief medical officer at Cincinnati Children’s, and director of the Cincinnati Children’s Research Foundation.

“We have had many firsts over the years that reflect how our long commitment to research and discovery has improved outcomes for children,” Cheng says. “Now as we celebrate a 100-year milestone, we want to look ahead. We share a mission to help bring about a new era of improvements in child health.”
