Dr. Jessi Solomon Sanders uses her combined background of special education and medicine to improve access to and quality of age-appropriate, specialized healthcare for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. She completed a six-year residency training program through Harvard Medical School (Boston Children’s Hospital) that included two years of pediatric residency followed by four years of Neurodevelopmental Disabilities, “NDD,” which included training in Adult and Child Neurology as well as Developmental Pediatrics. Dr. Solomon Sanders is a neurodevelopmental specialist working in Developmental Pediatrics and Neurology at the University of Colorado in Denver. She has a particular interest in improving the transition from pediatric to adult care for patients with complex neurodevelopmental disorders as well as caring for individuals with developmental disabilities as they age. She dedicates time to clinical, research, and advocacy endeavors to improve access to and quality of specialized care for this vulnerable, aging population. Dr. Solomon Sanders cherishes her experiences with Best Buddies, Special Olympics, and other organizations that have provided a window into the dynamic lives and strengths of individuals with developmental disabilities. In her free time, she enjoys tandem biking, skiing, and hiking with her husband, Mike. She also enjoys live music, and plays the dobro, a bluegrass instrument. She looks forward to getting to know more of the community here in Denver and collaborating with the inspiring scientists and clinicians in the CUACC.
