Message from the Director

Jill Fussell

Dr. Jill Fussell, Section Chief

Our faculty, fellows and staff are committed to enhancing the health of all children through excellence in clinical care, education, research, and service. Our mission is to provide state of the art care children and families at-risk of or having developmental and/or physical medicine conditions, including motor, communication, social, cognitive, learning and/or behavioral challenges. Our faculty particularly value interdisciplinary care, coordinating closely with other disciplines such as psychology, speech-language pathology, occupational therapy, physical therapy, nursing, social work and others. This allows us the opportunity to fully appreciate an individual child’s profile of strengths and struggles, and develop a comprehensive plan to maximize children’s outcomes. Our core values of integrity, respect, teamwork, creativity and excellence are central to our approach in accomplishing our mission.

On behalf of our faculty, fellows, staff and partners at UAMS, ACH, ACRI and AR DHS, I invite you to experience for yourself the components and programs of the Section of Developmental-Behavioral & Rehabilitative Pediatrics. Join us and make a difference for children.
