Dr. Greg Barabell is the medical director for Select Health of South Carolina and focuses on prevention-based health care for hundreds of thousands of Medicaid recipients in the state.

He’s also working on a collaborative effort at the state level to coordinate improvements for children’s health care through the use of information technology.

Barabell first came to Charleston for a pediatric residency at the Medical University of South Carolina. While there, he worked with disadvantaged children, which shaped his perspective on preventive medicine. Barabell has promoted school-based clinics in the Lowcountry and works with the Mayor’s Office for Children, Youth and Families. He helped develop Charleston’s First Day Festival, which celebrates the beginning of the school year and allows families to stock up on school supplies and learn about student services and healthy snacks.
