Fern R. Hauck, M.D., M.S. is currently Associate Professor of Family Medicine and Public Health Sciences at the University of Virginia School of Medicine. She is also the Director of the International Family Medicine Clinic at UVA.

Dr. Hauck’s primary research focuses on sudden unexpected infant death, including Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). She has studied risk factors for SIDS and other unexpected infant deaths, especially focusing on African-American and other minority communities. She has also studied bedsharing practices cross culturally and preventive strategies, such as pacifier use. An important theme of Dr. Hauck’s research is eliminating disparities in health services and outcomes. She is a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics Task Force on SIDS and is an advisor to several other organizations and federal agencies that focus on infant health and safety.

Her other professional passion is global health and caring for refugees. She started the International Family Medicine Clinic in 2002, which serves the refugee population of Charlottesville.

Dr. Hauck enjoys many hobbies including travel (she has traveled to many parts of the world); gardening; reading; theater and music. Most of all, she enjoys spending time with her family.
