More about Dr. Diane Gerlach: 

Dr. Gerlach decided to become a physician while in the fourth grade in her hometown of Rudolph, Wis. It was then that she first developed her belief that a big part of keeping children healthy involves educating both the child and parents.

In addition to her special interest in foster care and international adoption, she is a strong proponent of children, working to prevent child abuse and helping teenage parents learn to raise their children responsibly.

Dr. Gerlach earned her medical degree from the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed her residency at Pitt County Memorial hospital in Greenville, North Carolina. She is board certified in pediatrics and has been on the Kenosha County Board of Health for many years.
