David Braun named director of UI Student Health Services

David Braun, M.D. has been named director of Student Health Services at the University of Iowa.

As director, Braun will oversee student health care and provide education and wellness programs to promote healthy and balanced lifestyles. He is also responsible for monitoring the campus to prevent and control infectious diseases among students.

Braun comes to the UI from Illinois State University's Student Health Service, where he was a staff physician, chaired the cultural competency committee, and served on its housing appeals board and Alcohol Support Network. Prior to that, he was the primary physician involved with a large multi-specialty clinic's expansion of an after-hours access clinic into a seven-day a week urgent care and occupational medicine clinic. He received his M.D. from the UI in 1997 and a Bachelor of Arts degree from Marquette University in 1993. He completed his residency in family practice at Ball Memorial Hospital in Muncie, Ind. in 2000.

"David brings an exciting energy that will enhance and continue the excellence of the Student Health Service," said Phillip E. Jones, vice president of student services and dean of students at the UI.

Student Health Services is a Joint Commission accredited primary care facility operated under the UI vice president for student services. Located at 4189 Westlawn South, it is staffed with an extensive team of dedicated professionals, including eight family medicine physicians, two psychiatrists, a gynecologist and a physician assistant. Many of the nurses hold a special college health certification.
