Father, Daughter Take Turns Being "The Other Dr. Allen"

Above, two generations of Allens—David B. Allen, MD (left), and Brittany J. Allen, MD—are on the Department of Pediatrics faculty. This photo and the accompanying article were shared with permission from "Quarterly."

A father and daughter pair of pediatricians are making an impact at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health (SMPH) and American Family Children’s Hospital, where they trained and practice. Their personal stories meld and diverge, and they honor each other’s differences—all for the love of their patients and their family. 

Rewind to the growing-up years for Brittany J. Allen, MD, and the family was frequently discussing an “issue of the day” over dinner, says her dad, David B. Allen, MD. Now a professor and head of the Division of Endocrinology and Diabetes in the SMPH Department of Pediatrics, David Allen’s early research focused on the effectiveness and ethics of treating children with human growth hormone (hGH). He often came home and described—de-identified, of course—a challenging patient he saw at work or read about in the literature. Or Brittany Allen’s mom, Sally Allen, might return from teaching students with learning disabilities and share a helpful approach she’d discovered. Today, the grown siblings remember those discussions as formative. 

“Our parents see each of us as individuals who bring our own qualities to the table,” says Brittany Allen, who joined the Department of Pediatrics faculty in 2013. “About our personal and professional lives, they say ‘You are driving this bus, and we are excited to see where it’s going!’” 

Brittany Allen’s passion and talent for teaching is apparent, says her father, who adds with a laugh, “The tables have turned from her to me being ‘The Other Dr. Allen.’” 

Watching his daughter—a specialist in the care of transgender, non-binary and gender-diverse (TNG) youth—advise residents or develop innovative modules for medical students reminds him of his 15 years as the program director of the Pediatrics Residency Program. 

“We both strive to help people develop ways of thinking rather than memorizing knowledge,” says David Allen.

New Faculty Focus: A Q&A with Anne Marsh, MD

Above, a photo of Dr. Anne Marsh (Associate Professor, Division of Hematology, Oncology & Bone Marrow Transplant), middle bottom, with her wife Nikole Neidlinger, MD, and children Aleks, Ryan, and Tobin. Photo credit: Dr. Anne Marsh.
 “It’s a privilege to be back working at American Family Children’s Hospital, a facility that serves as a resource to the entire state of Wisconsin,” stated Anne Marsh, MD (Associate Professor, Division of Hematology, Oncology & Bone Marrow Transplant) during a recent interview about her decision to join the University of Wisconsin Department of Pediatrics as a faculty member this past March. Dr. Marsh attended medical school at the University of Wisconsin’s School of Medicine and Public Health and completed her general pediatrics training with the Department of Pediatrics. Reflecting back on the education she received as an intern, Dr. Marsh remarked, “it’s nice to now be in a position to give back to the people and communities of Wisconsin by contributing to the education of students and providing care at American Family Children’s Hospital.” 
Learn more about Dr. Marsh’s background, her commitment to whole-person pediatric care, and her hopes of hosting a Peds Pond Hockey game in this Q&A.

New Grants


COVID-19 Supplement Awarded to Team

A second supplement to the ongoing U19 grant from the National Institutes of Health/National Institute of Allergy & Infectious Diseases (NIH/NIAID) was recently awarded to Principal Investigator James Gern, MD, and an inter-departmental team including co-investigators Christine Seroogy, MDAnn Palmenberg, PhD, Irene Ong, PhD (OB/GYN), Kristen Bernard, DVM, PhD (Veterinary Medicine), and Sean McIlwain, PhD (Biostatistics and Medical Informatics). In this COVID-19-related supplement entitled, “Identifying coronavirus B-cell epitopes associated with COVID-19 illness severity,” researchers will test the hypothesis that the pattern and quantity of antibody specific for epitopes of common coronaviruses will be associated with the risk of infection with SARS-CoV-2 and severity of illness. In addition, the team proposes that children who have more diverse antibody responses (recognize more epitopes) to common respiratory viruses at baseline may be less likely to become infected and ill with SARS-CoV-2 infection. The study population will consist of children enrolled in multiple NIAID-funded U19 cohorts, including WISC, COAST, URECA, MUPPITS, INSPIRE and others. The award is for $1,142,165 over 2.5 years.

Inga Hofmann, MD, and Jane Churpek, MD, MS, Awarded Seed Grant

Congratulations to Principal Investigator Inga Hofmann, MD, and Co-PI Jane Churpek, MD, MS (Medicine), who were recently awarded a one-year, $50,000 Clinical Implementation Grant from the UW Center for Human Genomics and Precision Medicine. Their project, entitled “Development of Cross-Departmental Precision Medicine Program for Hematologic Malignancies and Bone Marrow Failure in Adult and Pediatric Patients,” will develop the first comprehensive cross-departmental precision medicine program for pediatric and adult patients at UW. This program will be led by experts who offer comprehensive and standardized clinical care across pediatrics to adulthood, and will provide genomic testing and syndrome-specific comprehensive treatment plans that adjust for patient-specific risk factors.
