Professor of Pediatrics at Texas Tech University School of Medicine is the Executive Director of the InfantRisk Center and Associate Dean of Research. 
Dr. Hale is considered one of the foremost leading experts in the field of perinatal pharmacology and the use of medications.
The vision of the InfantRisk Center is to create a new body of drug information concerning the hazards and safety of medications and their use during pregnancy and during lactation.  Ultimately, we wish to funnel this information into an effort to extend and enhance our knowledge of the use of medications and other environmental chemicals in pregnant and breastfeeding women.
