HARRISBURG, Pa. – Karen Wang, MD, a pediatrician at Reading Hospital – Tower Health in Reading, Pa., has been named April’s Everyday Hero by the Pennsylvania Medical Society (PAMED).
PAMED’s Everyday Hero Award is designed to showcase talented physicians who probably don’t view themselves as heroes, but to patients and colleagues they are. The award is a monthly member honor.
Kelley Crozier, MD, Chair, Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation who nominated Dr. Wang for the Everyday Hero Award, noted that her colleague has championed several children’s causes in the Reading area.
- Dr. Wang helped start the Ready.Set.Read program through the Berks County Chapter of the United Way, which provides age-appropriate books to children.
- In her practice at the Children’s Health Center at Reading Hospital, Dr. Wang developed a CenteringParenting program that incorporates group well visits for families with infants along with opportunities for parenting education and social support.
Dr. Wang earned her medical degree from Boston University and completed a residency in pediatrics from New England Medical Center. A native of York, Pa., Dr. Wang returned to Pennsylvania to practice in Reading 12 years ago.
You can learn more about her story at 12:20 p.m. on Thursday, April 11, when PAMED will present Dr. Wang with the Everyday Hero Award. A brief ceremony will be held at the Children’s Health Center, 206 South Sixth Avenue, West Reading, Pa.
