Get to Know Me

Gerard Kuhn, MD, is a board-certified pediatrician. He is an advocate for early literacy. He serves on the board of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).

Why I Treat Children

I discovered during medical school that I enjoyed taking care of children most of all. I like being a part of helping families take care of their children’s health and watching them grow. I prefer the broad spectrum of pediatrics, which is why I went into primary care. I care about the quality of medical care children receive on a daily basis.

What I'm Passionate About

I’m passionate about educating and coaching families in certain areas of childhood health that need attention. Childhood obesity is an example, where I help families understand the importance of healthy eating and exercise — and doing as both as a family.Another passion of mine would be helping families recognize the importance of early literacy. Again, this is a family activity. Children want to learn, and parents play a big part in that early learning by introducing books. I’m involved with Reach Out and Read.

How I Try to Make A Difference

I’m involved with community service, like serving on the board of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation to help lend some medical expertise. I’m also on the board of the Friends of the National Library of Medicine.
