About Joy Hanson, MD, MPH
Joy Hanson, MD, MPH joined The Iowa Clinic because of the excellent collaboration between primary care physicians and specialists. A native of Cedar Falls, Dr. Hanson is very excited to be back in Iowa after completing her Pediatrics training at Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital in St. Louis and then working in the greater St. Louis area. She received her medical degree from the University of Iowa where she also completed her Master’s Degree in Public Health and was inducted into the Gold Humanism Honor Society. Dr. Hanson loves pediatrics because it allows her to take care of children from birth to young adulthood and build lasting relationships with families.
Outside of work, she enjoys running, hiking, reading, watching Kansas basketball and being a mom. She has previously been involved in advocacy groups and plans to continue that work at the Iowa Clinic.
