United States Senator Sherrod Brown has been a leading voice in the House of Representatives and now in the U.S. Senate, on behalf of the needs of children and their providers. He has championed equality in resident education funding through his leadership on Children’s Hospitals Graduate Medical Education program and worked to qualify children’s hospitals for 340B outpatient drug pricing program, Senator Brown has worked to assure that all Ohio children have access to exceptional pediatric care through his support of the statewide research in quality and transformation efforts such as our pediatric intensive care unit ventilator associated pneumonia project.
In the recent health care reform debate, Senator Brown was the voice for children and pediatric providers. He worked tirelessly to secure equal funding for Medicaid providers so that coverage really equal access to care for children, especially to pediatric specialists; and was successful in creating a $30 million loan forgiveness program for pediatric specialists.
On Monday, May 10, Dayton Children’s presented Senator Sherrod Brown with the A Child’s Voice award for his passion for making sure that our country is making smart investments in our children’s health.
The Children’s Medical Center of Dayton’s professional staff presents a recognition every two years to a member of Dayton Children’s professional staff and also, when warranted, to a national leader. The award is called “A Child’s Voice.” To receive this honor, one must demonstrate outstanding efforts on behalf of children and must lead in the development of programs that improve the health and well-being of the children of the Miami Valley.
Gregory Eberhart, MD, is the professional staff A Choice Voice 2010 recipient and received his award in June.
Your generous donations of time, money and resources help Dayton Children's provide quality pediatric health care services to all children regardless of their family’s ability to pay.
