Children's National

In Honor of John Snyder, MD

Dr. John Snyder, Chief of the Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition at Children's National Health System, passed away after suffering a critical injury sustained during a bicycle accident while traveling in France on July 20, 2016. A special endowment fund has been established to benefit the Celiac Disease Program in memory of our close friend and talented colleague. Dr. Snyder, who served with distinction, was a passionate leader who significantly expanded the breadth of services and procedures offered to our young patients, which substantially improved many of their lives. He was particularly proud of the hospital's highly regarded multidisciplinary Pediatric Celiac Disease Program. His exemplary care and compassion will be missed by all who knew him.

In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that donations be made in his memory to the John D. Snyder, MD Endowment Fund. There are two options to submit your donation. You can do so electronically below or you can send a check to the attention of Allison Mitchell, Children's Hospital Foundation, 801 Roeder Road, Suite 300, Silver Spring, MD 20910.
