PHA Happenings

Jerome Gronli, MD
 Starting  in August you’ll see a new face around here. Jerome Gronli, MD will be joining our practice. Dr. Gronli recently finished his residency at the University of Chicago and earned his medical degree from Rush.

Dr. Gronli has a special interest in asthma, newborn care, and sports medicine. He speaks Spanish which many of our families will appreciate. He is excited to start working with the children and families at our Naperville and West Chicago offices!

We are now booking appointments for him at both offices. We know you’ll find him to be as delightful as we do!

Baby Abigail

Congratulations to Dr. Uselding on the birth of her daughter, Abigail, born Saturday May 12th.  Weighing in at 6 pounds 14 ounces, both mom and daughter are doing great!    

Romina Gieseman, CPNP  
 Congratulations to PHA Nurse Practitioner Romina Gieseman for being invited as a representative for the Western Suburbs Special Recreation Program (WSRA) to speak at a state wide conference on how to include/engage the Hispanic population into their programs.

WRSA is also working hard to help CareLink’s Autism Support Group secure a larger meeting space. Romina heads up this group for Latino families of children with autism.

Thank You to The DuPage Community Foundation for awarding the CareLink Foundation a $5,000 grant for the medical interpreter program! 

Jihad Shoshara, MD

As a practice we believe it is important to work on a broader scale for our patients. This year, Dr. Shoshara is running for the Executive Board of the Illinois Academy of Pediatrics to help shape the future policies, guidelines and recommendations for our kids. Good luck, Dr. Shoshara! 

Timothy Wall, MD
Michelle Maloney, CPNP
The June 2012 edition of the Journal of Pediatrics published the results of the obesity study that Dr. Wall and Nurse Practitioner Michelle Maloney participated in. Dr. Wall was invited to present his findings before the American Academy of Pediatrics this month as well. This information will be instrumental to the Academy for future revisions they may have to their obesity guidelines.  

Working Together For You!
