Dr. Jill Maron MIRI Exec. Dir. to become Women & Infants Chief of Pediatrics


Jill Maron, MD, MPH, Executive Director of the Mother Infant Research Institute (MIRI) and Vice Chair of Pediatric Research, will be leaving Tufts Medical Center and Tufts Children's Hospital at the end of September to pursue an exciting new opportunity at Women and Infants Hospital in Rhode Island.

Dr. Maron will be taking on the role of Chief of Pediatrics at Women & Infants Hospital in Providence and will become the Oh-Zopfi Endowed Chair of Pediatrics at Brown University on October 1. She will continue her research endeavors, creating her own Research Institute at Women & Infants' Hospital, and she looks forward to strengthening the neonatal academic and clinical mission at Brown. While Dr. Maron notes it will be very hard to leave her colleagues at Tufts Medical Center and MIRI, she is looking forward to this next challenge and chapter in her career.

Although her colleagues at MIRI are sad to see her leave, they thank her for her extraordinary work building MIRI and serving Tufts Medical Center and Tufts Children's Hospital. They are thrilled for her as she starts this exciting new position at Women & Infants Hospital!
