Dr. Ann Behrmann is a recently retired pediatrician for Group Health Cooperative of South Central Wisconsin, a Clinical Assistant Professor of Pediatrics for the UW-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health and Adjunct Faculty for the Center for South Asia. She is currently serving as the Program Director for the American Academy of Pediatrics’ International Community Access to Child Health (ICATCH) grants program.
Dr. Behrmann is interested in a wide variety of child health issues, including school health and disabled children in low resource settings.
Her interest in environmental health began when her patients who lived adjacent to the Badger Army Ammunition Plant in Baraboo, WI asked for help looking at the connection between health problems and contamination of their well water with volatile organic compounds. She has worked for decades with Physicians for Social Responsibility Wisconsin in Madison on abolition of nuclear weapons, violence prevention and now environmental health issues with the Wisconsin Environmental Health Network.
