Dr. Grace Loudon, a Family Practice Physician, joined the Clinic for Special Children in August 2020. Her training in Family Practice allows her to see patients of any age; making her an ideal addition to our staff. Dr. Loudon will lead efforts in formalizing an adult services program at the Clinic.
Dr. Loudon earned a bachelor’s degree in biology from Bryn Mawr College in 2012 and a medical degree from Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University in 2017. She completed her family practice residency at Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health (LGH) in 2020.
Over the last two years, Dr. Loudon visited and saw patients periodically at the Clinic as part of a special program between the Clinic and LGH called the Clinical Genomics area of concentration. When the Clinic partnered with the Family Medicine Residency Program at LGH to create this genetic medicine training program, Dr. Loudon was one of the first to sign up. Therefore she was taught by the best – Drs. Strauss, Carson and Poskitt!
In her free time, Dr. Loudon enjoys spending time with her family and her two cats (Miles and Millicent), visiting the beach, working on home improvement projects, biking, and running with her dog (Remi).
Why are you passionate about the Clinic?
The clinic is patient care, research, and science at its finest. I am ecstatic to be here working with, learning from, and being inspired by my patients, their families, and my colleagues. But actually, it’s not work because I love what I get to do.
