Each year the American Board of Pediatrics (APB) chooses two pediatricians from across the nation for the 2014 Paul V. Miles Fellowship in Quality Improvement. Brad Weselman, MD, a practicing pediatrician at Snapfinger Woods Pediatrics in Atlanta was one of those selected for his tireless pursuit for increased communication, improved patient safety and improved pediatric quality of care.
In addition to his clinical practice, Dr. Weselman has served as Chairman of the Kids Health First Quality/Utilization Management Committee for the last eleven years. Kids Health First Pediatric Alliance is a clinically integrated and Independent Practice Association (IPA) comprised of 210 primary care pediatricians and 60 physician extenders in 38 Atlanta-based primary care pediatric practices.
A practicing pediatrician for more than 15 years, Dr. Weselman was nominated by Robert Wiskind, MD, president of the Georgia chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics, and Thomas Finnerty, CEO of Kids Health First.
Also recognized by the American Board of Pediatrics was Marlene R. Miller, M.D., MSc, professor of pediatrics at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
