About the Author

Dr. Pat Brown is an author, physician, and health expert dedicated to solving the childhood obesity problem through her children's health book. Her desire to become a physician stemmed from many things, but one of the most powerful influences on her decision comes from a very tragic and personal experience that occurred during childhood. Her only sister passed away suddenly at the age of three when Dr. Brown was only 10 years old. This event not only changed her outlook on the value of life but solidified her choice to become a medical doctor.


Dr. Brown graduated from Northwestern University with a degree in biology, and received her medical degree from the University of Illinois where she trained in the care of both adults and children. Upon graduation from medical school, she completed her residency training in pediatrics at the University of Chicago in Illinois.
