Alison J. Delgado, MD, "My Race for Life"

Join us this Thursday, May 4, 2023, for a LUNCH (12:00-1:30pm) meeting at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza, Hall of Mirrors, for a presentation by Alison J. Delgado, MD, “My Race for Life”.

Alison Bedingfield Delgado had a conventional upbringing in a suburb of Greater Cincinnati. From an early age, Alison excelled in academics and athletics, graduating class valedictorian from Colerain High School, where she was a member of the four-time state champion cross country team.  

In her first-time entry into the Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon in 2005, the unknown 22-year-old placed first in the women’s division. Then, in 2010, as a newlywed and second-year pediatric resident at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, Alison was hit by a car while cycling on a suburban road.  Her husband, an emergency helicopter physician at University Hospital, was dispatched to treat an unidentified traffic victim and bring her back to University of Cincinnati Medical Center—only to discover the patient was his wife. 

Alison had suffered a traumatic brain injury and developed aneurysms that required surgery and intensive rehabilitation therapy. With patience and exceptional determination, the young physician completed her medical training and is now a practicing pediatrician in Park City, Utah. She resumed running, and while placing fourth in the 2012 Flying Pig, bested her own time from 2005. She went on to compete in the Boston Marathon.
