Connie Blade

Past Board President
Pediatrician, Town and Country Pediatrics
“Throughout most of my career, I’ve worked with children in the child welfare system. As a young doctor, I worked at Cook County Hospital, directing their Child Protection Team; I’ve also traveled throughout the Midwest teaching professionals how to recognize child abuse and neglect. I’ve also served on the Cook County Child Death Review Committee as well as the Board for The Illinois Professional Society on Child Abuse and the Center for Law and Social Work. Some of my most fulfilling experiences recently have been watching Susan as she tirelessly works with her students, teaching them life skills, gaining their trust and respect, and helping them regain hope.”
