Professor of Pediatrics, University of Vermont

Dr. Richard C. “Mort” Wasserman has been a general pediatrician in the UVM Department of Pediatrics since 1983, conducting primary care research, teaching, and providing primary care.  Dr. Wasserman’s research has focused on using practice-based research networks to better understand and improve the delivery of preventive services and the care of common conditions in pediatric populations.  He recently returned from a sabbatical leave at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), where he investigated the use of EMR data in epidemiological and comparative effectiveness research.  While at CHOP, he wrote a grant proposal to create an EMR-based “subnetwork” within Pediatric Research in Office Settings (PROS), the practice-based research network of the American Academy of Pediatrics.  That three-year grant was funded by the HRSA Maternal and Child Health Bureau in September of 2010.

Vermont’s vaccine promoting doctor and his latest “study” on HPV vaccine: “family-focused decision support with educational telephone calls” –

Note that Wasserman wrote “A Pediatrician’s case for mandatory vaccinations…” which was published not long ago. APparently he would mandate HPV, too.
