Bio

Currently an Associate Professor of Pediatrics and Internal Medicine, Dr. Kelly Maples has been full time faculty at Eastern Virginia Medical School since 2007. She's been teaching pediatric residents and caring for patients at Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters since that time. She received Bachelors degrees in biological sciences and psychology from Rutgers University, followed her MD from Temple University School of Medicine in Philadelphia, PA. Dr. Maples completed residency training at EVMS and fellowship at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond.

Nationally, she has been selected by her peers for several leadership positions. She previously served a 3-year term on the Board of Regents of the American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology (ACAAI) and a one-year term on the ACAAI Executive Board. She has been the Chair of the ACAAI Dermatology Committee for the last 6 years and serves as Chair of the ACAAI Dermatology Scientific Counsel and the ACAAI Expert Committee on Atopic Dermatitis. Each year she is invited to teach allergists nationally at the ACAAI annual meetings. She also teaches national webinars for the Asthma and Allergy Network (AAN). In addition, she serves on the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology (AAAAI) Food Allergy Committee and Mild Food Allergy Subcommittee and presents to her peers at AAAAI national annual meetings.

Dr. Maples is committed to improving the care of atopic dermatitis in patients with skin of color and teaches residents and other allergists about this topic. She recently helped develop www.eczemainskinofcolor.org with a team at the ACAAI and AAN. Her team won a 2022 Ragan Diversity award for their work on this website.

Locally, she has been selected as a TopDoc in Allergy and Immunology by her peers each year since 2011. Dr. Maples represents the Division of Allergy and Immunology on the Management Committee of Children's specialty group and is involved in school outreach.
