Alison S. Tothy, M.D. is a graduate of Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York. She completed her residency in Pediatrics and her fellowship in Pediatric Emergency Medicine in Chicago at Children’s Memorial Hospital through The Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University. She is board certified in Pediatrics and Pediatric Emergency Medicine. Currently, Dr. Alison is the Medical Director of the Pediatric Emergency Department at The University of Chicago Medical Center Comer Children’s Hospital, and she’s returning to Adirondack for her fifth year. In addition, Dr. Alison recently co-wrote the policy on Camping for the American Academy of Pediatrics, and has provided Camp Health and Safety Education to staff at several camps.
Dr. Alison grew up going to a girls’ camp, so when she became the parent of two sons, she turned to the much-loved camp of husband Peter, a physician and an ADK alum. Sons Daniel and Jason have become dedicated Adirondack campers just like their Dad, and it’s great to see them having so much fun at camp. “What’s not to like about camp! Adirondack has in effect become a home away from home for our family. It is a place where we have made good friends and we look forward to seeing them every year. The staff are great, well trained and truly care about the campers. I love that campers come from all over the world to experience camp.”
