L. Louise Tetrick


I was born in Indianapolis and attended North Central High School. I initially attended the University of Colorado, but transferred to Indiana University where I received my BA degree. I then attended Indiana University School of Medicine and received my MD degree. My internship and Pediatric residency were at Methodist Hospital, Indianapolis.

I have a special interest in research–bringing new vaccinations and drugs to market in hopes of continuing to improve the healthcare of children.

I am married and have two grown daughters that I am very proud of and enjoy spending time with. In my spare time I like gardening and traveling.
