Welcome Alumni!
The Cincinnati Children’s Alumni Association is proud to introduce our first Alumni Newsletter. This quarterly e-newsletter is intended to be your link to Cincinnati Children’s and to the alumni community. We plan to have Alumni Spotlights, important hospital updates, useful clinical tools you can use, and more! If you would like to submit a story, please email
Coronavirus (COVID-19)
As the Coronavirus continues to develop across the United States, Cincinnati Children’s is continuously monitoring the rapid changes. We have created a website dedicated to keeping all community healthcare providers up-to-date. We have steps to help providers prepare, an infographic you can use in your office, and hospital updates. Please visit and click on “Guidance for Community Providers.
Thank you for all you are doing for your communities. If you need any additional information, please contact the Alumni Relations team and we can help direct you to the appropriate resource.
Alumni Weekend 2020 Cancelled
Alumni Weekend 2020 has been cancelled. We are reviewing plans for this event and will share that information as soon as possible.
Alumni Spotlight- Alison Delgado, MD
Alison Delgado, MD graduated from our Pediatric Residency in December 2012. During her second year of residency, Alison suffered a traumatic brain injury from a bicycle accident. Her story of recovery is inspiring and she is now thriving in private practice (and in life) in Utah. Read Alison’s personal letter to her fellow alumni and hear more about her story.

Women's History Month
March is Women’s History Month. Women’s contributions to Cincinnati Children’s date back to its founding. In 1883 a group of Episcopal women appealed to their bishop to open a hospital for children as a project of the local diocese.
Clinical Support Tools
A library of clinical support tools was introduced earlier this year. These are concise, templated, documents that provide information on common conditions. Four of the tools (Syncope, Chest Pain, Cystic Fibrosis, Hypertension) are now available and over twenty additional topics are being developed. Tools are available online and in a newly released app for Android and iPhone.
Update your alumni profile!
The Cincinnati Children’s Alumni Association and your Alumni Relations proudly introduced the first dedicated Alumni Website in 2019.  We are excited about the next phase of our website- an interactive, geocoded map! Soon you will be able to search for your Cincinnati Children’s colleagues all over the globe, but first we need your help.

All alumni* have a profile on the website, which includes your professional and personal contact information. Login TODAY to make sure we have the most up-to-date information. Due to the private nature of the information, this website is username and password protected. New users must request access to the site. Please allow 3 business days for the Alumni Relations team to process your request.
*Cincinnati Children’s defines alumni to include all past trainees, current and past members of the medical staff and faculty. This inclusive definition is part of the hospital’s commitment to our people. We aim to appreciate the history of our organization and the people who have walked through our doors, we well as where these people have gone and the accomplishments they have made.
