About the Presenter:
Undergraduate education in Biochemistry at University of Notre Dame, followed by medical school at Indiana University, Pediatric residency at Medical College of Georgia, and Pediatric endocrine fellowship at Cincinnati Children’s hospital. Dr. Alexandrou is the Clinical Assistant Professor in Pediatric Endocrinology/Diabetes at University of Iowa. She joined the faculty in August 2020.

During her fellowship she grew a great interest and commitment to caring for girls and women with Turner syndrome. She had the privilege of caring for many individuals with Turner syndrome throughout my fellowship, and pursued research projects regarding quality improvement in how we deliver care to these individuals.

One of my projects entailed introduction of an anxiety screening tool in our endocrine clinic to more proactively detect symptoms of anxiety and prompt timely referrals as well as set the groundwork for productive discussions. Currently, at the University of Iowa, she and her colleagues are working together to start an interdisciplinary TS Center.
