Founder and Volunteer
Dr. Chuck boasts a diverse career as pediatric physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist, international medicine enthusiast, entrepreneur, professor, and athlete.
Growing up in Kokomo, Indiana, over 150 foster children came through his family’s home. His special gift of working with children became apparent to his mother, who encouraged him to become a pediatrician. In 1997 and 1998, he traveled to India on orthopedic missions working alongside Mother Teresa. Inspired to make a deeper commitment to the medically underserved, Dr. Chuck founded Timmy Global Health (formerly the Timmy Foundation) in 1997. His work with Timmy has taken him to Ecuador, Guatemala, Nigeria, Haiti, and the Dominican Republic. He has also traveled to Albania, Cuba, Kenya, Honduras, Bolivia, El Salvador, the Ukraine, and Brazil. He earned his B.S. in Agriculture from Purdue University and his M.D. from Indiana University. He received his training as a pediatric physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist at the University of Alabama Birmingham. He currently serves as the Medical Director, Pediatric Rehabilitation at Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health.
