A Pediatric Rehabilitation Physician's View on Poverty as Cause and Consequence of Disability


"Poverty is both a cause and a consequence of disability," said Amy Houtrow, MD, PhD, MPH, chief of pediatric rehabilitation medicine at the UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh in a recent interview with Patient Care®. Houtrow has spearheaded research on the impact of socioeconomic disadvantage on neurodevelopmental and mental health conditions in children and shared her perspective on barriers to effective care for pediatric patients with disabilities and some of the creative outreach she has seen.

Amy Houtrow, MD, PhD, MPH, is chief of pediatric rehabilitation medicine at the UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh; endowed professor of physical medicine and rehabilitation and pediatrics at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine; and secretary of the Board of Governors of the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
