Christina Branham, MD


Specialty: Pediatrics

Dr. Branham started her medical career in academics, working and teaching at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine. She went on to establish a private practice in her hometown of Decatur, IL where she practiced pediatrics for 12 years. Dr. Branham is excited to be a part of NorthShore Health Centers where she can use her training and years of experience to positively impact the lives of children and their families in NW Indiana. She especially loves educating and empowering new parents as they learn to care for their children.

Dr. Branham has two incredible sons and is proud to watch them follow their dreams and learn to be independent young adults. She enjoys the company of my Labrador retriever, Charlie, who loves to take walks and play ball. She loves spending time with family and friends, traveling, painting “kindness” rocks and leaving them places for people to find, trying different arts and crafts, cooking new recipes, playing games, and listening to music.
