Please join us on October 12, 2022 in Room C1001 of the IU Health Sciences Building adjacent to the new hospital for LCW's third quarterly meeting,
where Indiana State Health Commissioner Dr. Kristina Box will speak about the state's new My Healthy Baby program.
Dr. Box was named to her position by Governor Eric J. Holcomb on September 18, 2017,
and has brought to the role a passion for improving the health of Hoosiers, beginning before birth.
Dr. Box has been a practicing obstetrician and gynecologist in Indianapolis for 30 years.
She has served on the Indiana Perinatal Quality Improvement Collaborative (IPQIC), an advisory council to the Indiana State Department of Health
that is comprised of more than 300 statewide community professionals working to reduce infant mortality.
Her work with IPQIC included serving on a state task force to address neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS),
which established standards for the diagnosis of NAS and developed a hospital study to determine the prevalence of drug-exposed newborns.
Dr. Box earned her undergraduate degree at Indiana University in Bloomington
and her medical doctorate at Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis.
She and her husband of 40 years, David, a retired ophthalmologist, live in Indianapolis.
