Dr. Chris Peltier celebrated his 20th
anniversary at Pediatric Assoc of Mt Carmel last month! Dr. Peltier started in August 1999 after completing his pediatric residency and serving as Chief Resident at Indiana University/Riley Children's Hospital.
In addition to providing excellent pediatric care to our patients and families, Dr. Peltier teaches medical students and pediatric residents who spend time in our office. He feels very strongly that all medical students and pediatric residents need to have the opportunity to learn from community pediatricians. Because of this work, Dr. Peltier was named the Director of the Community Section of Cincinnati Children's Department of General and Community Pediatrics in 2007.
He has been in charge of our research program for over 15 years. He believes that by doing research studies we can help improve the medications and healthcare products that are available for our patients. Our office has done studies which aim to improve the safety and effectiveness of vaccines, infant formula, and other medications.
Dr. Peltier's passion for serving children extends beyond our practice and Cincinnati. He has been on the Board of Directors of the Ohio American Academy of Pediatrics since 2016 and is currently Treasurer of this organization. The Ohio AAP works to promote the health, safety and wellness of the children and adolescents of our state through advocacy, education, research and service. He is also active in the national AAP as a member of the executive committee and chair person for education for the Council on Community Pediatrics.
We are not sure where he finds the time but Dr. Peltier is also active with his alma mater, the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine and is currently on the Alumni Executive Council. He is currently serving a term as President of this council. He is a rabid Bearcats fan and enjoys attending Bearcats' sporting event.
We would like to congratulate Dr. Peltier on continuing to provide outstanding care to our patients and their families and for all that he does to improve the care and well being of all of the children of our community and our state.
