Congratulations to Peter Ferrazzano, MD (Professor and Division Chief, Division of Critial Care), who is the initial recipient of the Enid and Jerry Weygandt Professorship in Pediatric Critical Care. Enid and Jerry Weygandt (Professor Emeritus at the University of Wisconsin School of Business) have been loyal contributors to the Department of Pediatrics since 2012 when they made their first gift as part of the Sick Kids Can’t Wait campaign. Jerry and Enid have continued giving an annual donation, including a gift in January of 2019, joining The 1920 Society, an initiative to strengthen the endowment at the American Family Children’s Hospital.   
The Division of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine, led by Dr. Ferrazzano, provides outstanding state-of-the-art care in a collaborative and coordinated manner to all critically ill children admitted to American Family Children’s Hospital.  The Division also provides high quality patient care to children and families undergoing sedation for diagnostic and therapeutic procedures and medical imaging.  Division members are engaged in a variety of scholarly activities that include medical education, transport medicine, quality improvement, medical ethics, and global health, in addition to a wide range of innovative clinical and basic science research projects.  The Weygandt Professorship will be front and center in helping to advance the Division’s priorities and initiatives, aimed at continually improving the care provided to critically ill children.
