Dr. Ann, founded Rainbow Pediatrics in 1974, was named “Outstanding Pediatrician of the Year” by the Ohio Chapter of The American Academy of Pediatrics. Dr. Ann has been named numerous times by her peers as one of the best pediatricians in America. She was awarded the lifetime achievement award from Nationwide Children’s Hospital in 2009. The State of Ohio legislature issued a resolution, sponsored by house speaker Verne Riffe, honoring her efforts on behalf of children’s health and well-being. She received the AAP “Special Achievement Award” for her legislative advocacy, which included legislation mandating child car seat restraints, insurance coverage for preventative care and immunizations, insurance coverage for a 48 hour stay in the hospital following newborn delivery and universal hearing screening on all new babies. Dr. Rogers served six years on the AAP committee of state government affairs and another six years on the AAP Committee of federal government affairs. Dr. Rogers chaired the AAP Ohio chapter’s public policy committee for twenty years.
Her professional passion is teaching, including premed students, medical students, residents and, of course, my families. She hopes to extend her services to include world-wide medical missions, for she has a keen interest in the cultures, religions, customs, languages and native medical practices of all people. Over the years, she has learned unmeasurably from her Rainbow families, many of whom hail from all over the world. This has been enhanced with her wonderful travels, including six of the seven continents.
