SIOUX FALLS, SD -
A Sioux Falls neonatal doctor has been named interim pediatrics chair at the Sanford School of Medicine of the University of South Dakota.
Dennis Stevens has practiced neonatology in Sioux Falls since 1980. Some of his published research involves the impact of the neonatal intensive care nursery environment upon the developing premature newborn and family.
The school says he has also landed about $10 million in federal grants that have funded an ongoing educational program regarding the evaluation and ongoing treatment of infants and young children with disabilities and special health care needs.
Stevens was awarded the Outstanding Achievement Award by the Association of University Centers on Disabilities in 2010 for his work in that area.
