    Dr. Johnson's career has focused on improving access to quality healthcare for underserved populations using an asset based approach that leverages existing resources to strengthen community services. As part of that effort he developed ECHO-Chicago, primarily an urban focused telehealth program for capacity building at the community level using high grade videoconferencing technology to build a virtual conference room to deliver case based learning to primary care providers in the diagnose and management of common chronic complex health conditions.

He is Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Chicago Medicine, in the Department of Pediatrics where he serves as Vice Chair for Clinical Services, Section Chief of Academic Pediatrics and Interim Section Chief for Pediatric Infectious Diseases. He practices at Comer Children’s Hospital, Edward Hospital, and Mount Sinai Hospital. At University of Chicago Medicine since 2007, his focus includes developing and improving community-based pediatric general and specialty services in underserved communities.
