Professor Emeritus of Pediatrics at the University of Washington School of Medicine

Dr. Christine Gleason is a neonatologist and Professor Emeritus of Pediatrics at the University of Washington School of Medicine. From 1997- 2015, she served as the Chief of the Division of Neonatology at the University of Washington/Seattle Children’s Hospital. In 2015, she stepped down as Division Chief to pursue new personal and professional opportunities, including a selection as a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health Policy Fellow (2016-18) where her year-long Congressional assignment was in the Office of the Democratic Leader, Nancy Pelosi. Dr. Gleason has held a number of national leadership positions including President of the Perinatal Research Society, Secretary-Treasurer of the American Pediatric Society, Chair (and now Medical Editor) of the American Board of Pediatrics’ Neonatal Sub-Board, member (and now President) of the Board of Directors of the Pediatric Academic Societies, Inc. and President of the Board of Trustees of the Pediatric Research Foundation.

Dr. Gleason received her undergraduate degree from Brown University and her medical degree from the University of Rochester. She completed her pediatric residency at Rainbow Babies and Children’s (Case Western Reserve University) and her neonatology fellowship at Mt. Zion Hospital/University of California San Francisco. She joined the faculty at Johns Hopkins in 1985, becoming Division Director of Neonatology there in 1990. In 1997 she moved to the University of Washington/Seattle Children’s as Chief of the Division of Neonatology where she focused on growing the division’s clinical services, moving her NIH-funded research work forward and re-invigorating the neonatal educational programs. In addition to authoring numerous scientific articles, book chapters and editing textbooks, she wrote a memoir of her years as a trainee and junior faculty member (Almost Home) which was published in 2009. She has received several awards including the Seattle Children’s Pediatric Housestaff Faculty Teaching Award and the UW Medicine Award for Excellence in Mentoring of Women and Minorities.

Dr. Gleason’s leadership philosophy is based on the premise that it takes a village: First, find the right position for the right person at the right time. Second, enable/empower that person to be successful. She believes that selfless mentorship and coaching have been among the most satisfying aspects of her academic career and she is passionate about passing on her own learnings (especially, her failings) to emerging pediatric leaders.
