Colby A. Wyatt, MD, PhD, is chief of the division of pediatric pulmonary medicine and medical director of pediatric specialty care at the MaineHealth Medical Group.

In 2013, Dr. Wyatt returned to his home state of Maine with goals of improving pediatric respiratory health across the state and access to specialty clinical care for Maine’s rural children. In addition to his academic and clinical appointments, at Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital, Dr. Wyatt is a member of the cystic fibrosis therapeutic development network research team, a member of the MaineHealth clinical advisory committee, serves on the board of directors for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Maine, and served on the medical advisory board for the Gorham School District, and the board of health for Gorham, Maine.
