Brian Gannon, MD, was recently welcomed to the College as an assistant professor in the Department of Pediatrics. 

Gannon joins the College with several years of experience in pediatrics. He practiced general pediatrics in Murfreesboro, Tenn. for eight years before moving to Owensboro, Ky., where he spent another six years in private practice. 

Gannon’s special interests include adoption, ADHD, multiple births and children with developmental delays.

He completed his undergraduate education at Vanderbilt University before attending medical school at the University of Tennessee School of Medicine. Gannon went on to complete three years of residency training in pediatrics at Saint Louis University’s Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital.

“We are very glad to have Dr. Gannon on board,” says Karen Burgess, associate professor and chair of the College’s Department of Pediatrics.

Gannon and his wife, Michele, are active in the foster care community as foster care parents and advocates, particularly to children who are medically fragile. Currently, they are parents to eight children.
