An experienced public health professional and senior medical administrator, Dr. Ramesh Sachdeva functions as the associate executive director of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) in Elk Grove Village, Illinois. As part of his work with the AAP, Dr. Ramesh Sachdeva has served as the project director and a principal investigator for the Awareness and Access to Care for Children and Youth with Epilepsy project.

Conducted in partnership with the Epilepsy Foundation, the Awareness and Access to Care for Children and Youth with Epilepsy project was undertaken with financial support from the Maternal and Child Health Bureau of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Administration. From 2004 to 2008, the project worked to improve access to comprehensive and coordinated pediatric epilepsy health care services in underserved areas of California, Illinois, Mississippi, New Jersey, Oregon, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and the District of Columbia.

Part of the project’s mission was to apply the advancements of the adult epilepsy Project ECHO within the pediatric setting. Short for Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes, ECHO was developed to treat chronic and complex cases of epilepsy in various rural and underserved populations of New Mexico.
