About Me

 

 Deb Shropshire is a pediatrician at the OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City.  Her heart was captivated when, as a medical student, she encountered the complex world of foster children.  That experience changed her career direction, and as a young physician she began to seek opportunities to work with groups that advocate for children who have been abused or neglected.  She provides direct health care service to children at a local shelter and through the Fostering Hope clinic, and she serves as a resource for child welfare workers, CASA volunteers, courts, families, and anyone else who encounters the foster system.  Her greatest desire is to inspire individuals, communities, and the church to rise up and bring an end to generational child maltreatment through physical, emotional, and spiritual healing of this generation of foster kids.
