Children's Hospital of Philadelphia physician elected to Institute of Medicine

A prominent physician-scientist at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Virginia A. Stallings, M.D., has been elected to the Institute of Medicine. Dr. Stallings has long been a leading researcher in the nutritional needs of children.

The Institute of Medicine (IOM) today announced the election of 64 new members from throughout the United States, in recognition of their major contributions to the advancement of medical sciences, health care and public health. Established in 1970 by the National Academy of Sciences, the IOM honors professional achievement in the health sciences and serves as a national resource for independent analysis and recommendations on issues related to medicine, biomedical sciences and health.

Current members of the Institute elect new members from a slate of candidates nominated for their professional achievement.

Dr. Stallings is the director of the Nutrition Center and deputy director of the Joseph Stokes Research Institute at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. An attending physician in the hospital's Division of Gastroenterology and Nutrition, she holds the Jean Cortner Endowed Chair in Pediatric Gastroenterology. She also is a Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.

Dr. Stallings' research has focused on nutrition-related growth failure in children and adolescents with chronic medical conditions such as cerebral palsy, cystic fibrosis, obesity, sickle cell disease and osteoporosis. Her work has helped establish national standards for nutritional care for children with these diseases.

As deputy director of the Stokes Research Institute, Dr. Stallings is a leader in one of the nation's largest pediatric research programs. She has lectured extensively around the country on pediatric nutrition and bone health issues.

After receiving her bachelor of science degree from Auburn University, she earned a master's degree in human nutrition from Cornell
