Katherine Gnauk, M.D.

Dr. Gnauck is a pediatrician with a subspeciality in Pediatric Emergency Medicine. She is on Associate Professor of Pediatrics at the University of New Mexico Health Science Center in Albuquerque. Dr. Gnauck has done volunteer medical field work in Africa with an international medical NGO.

Her volunteer work with the HIV-positive women in the West Nile region of northern Uganda, who belong to the the Ministry of Health – Prevention Mother To Child Transmission (PMTCT) medical programs, inspired her passion to economically empower these women to provide income for themselves and their families. This began her humanitarian effort to build and create the LifeStitches Uganda Project.

Her compassion for the women and her dedication to this effort is an inspiration to those who are privileged to work with her. She persists tirelessly through every obstacle and forges new opportunities for this project to grow with all of her spirit and time. She is AMAZING!
