Pediatrician Appointed to North Carolina Council on Developmental Disabilities

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – Paul Sagerman, M.D., associate professor of pediatrics at Brenner Children’s Hospital, part of Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center, has been appointed to serve on the North Carolina Council on Developmental Disabilities (NCCDD).

The NCCDD is a 34-member, governor-appointed council. Approximately 60 percent of its members are people with developmental disabilities or family members of people with disabilities. The council's mission is to speak up for the concerns of, and advise on the directions and policies that apply to, individuals with developmental disabilities.

“Paul’s dedication and focus has made him a powerful advocate for people with developmental disabilities,” said Jon S. Abramson, M.D., chair of pediatrics at Brenner Children’s Hospital. “We are proud to have someone with Paul’s compassion and spirit working with this council.”

Sagerman joined Brenner Children’s Hospital in 2002. He received his medical degree from SUNY Buffalo School of Medicine and completed his residency at St. Joseph’s Hospital, in Arizona. He is board certified by the American Board of Pediatrics.
