Ivor Hill, MD, MB, ChB, is Section Chief of Gastroenterology and Director of the Celiac Disease Center at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. He is also professor of Clinical Pediatrics at the Ohio State University College of Medicine.

One of the leading clinicians and researchers in childhood celiac disease, Dr. Hill has been instrumental in raising awareness of the disease in the United States.
