Pediatrician and pediatric infectious disease specialist joins Loyola University Health System

MAYWOOD, Ill. (April 8, 2014) – Nadia K. Qureshi, MD, has brought her expertise in pediatric infectious disease and general pediatrics to Loyola University Health System. She also is an assistant professor in the Department of Pediatrics at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine.

Her medical interests include well-child visits and preventive care. In addition, she specializes in infectious disease and is interested in the impact of vaccines on public health and travel medicine for children.

“It hurts me to see any child suffering, especially from an infection that can easily be prevented by a vaccine. Every child deserves to be protected and I want to be an advocate for them,” Qureshi said.

Before joining Loyola she spent several months as a visiting scholar at the Infection Control Department at the University Kebangsaan Malaysia Medical Center. She is active in research, having studies published in medical journals such as the Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal and International Journal of Infectious Diseases. She also has made presentations and given lectures at medical conferences around the world.

Qureshi is board certified in pediatrics and pediatric infectious disease by the American Board of Pediatrics. She earned her medical degree from Aga Khan University in Pakistan. She completed a residency in pediatrics at the University of Illinois Medical Center at Chicago and a fellowship in pediatric infectious disease at the University of Chicago medical center.

Dr. Qureshi sees patients at Loyola Hospital and the Loyola Outpatient Center, both located on the main medical campus in Maywood.
