Abimbola Olayinka
Palliative Care Physician
My favorite thing about being a pediatrician is working alongside kids and families. I think that children are interesting and fun at all ages, from the sweet newborn stage to the terrible twos and on to the even more terrible teens. I love being a palliative care physician because I have the opportunity to spend time connecting to the essence of what makes each patient a whole person. I joined the University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital team because I think that this health system does a wonderful job of blending the holistic care of patients with the advancement of medicine.
