About Dr. Foxworth

Dr. Foxworth, originally from Marion, SC, is board certified in Pediatrics and Pediatric Infectious Diseases. A graduate of the Medical University of South Carolina, Dr. Foxworth completed his residency, chief residency, and fellowship at the Children’s Hospital of Richmond in the Virginia Commonwealth University Health System. He is a recent CATCH Implementation Grant recipient, is the current SC AAP Chapter co-CATCH Facilitator, and a Contributing Section Editor in AAP Grand Rounds. Recently, Dr. Foxworth was selected to participate in the AAP Young Physicians’ Leadership Alliance through the Section on Early Career Physicians. He is one of only a few doctors in the state specializing in pediatric infectious diseases, implementing treatment and prevention in newborns, infants, children, and young adults with normal and abnormal immune systems.

Dr. Foxworth has been involved in F3 for over three years. F3 stands for Fitness, Fellowship, and Faith. It is a national network of free, peer-led workouts for men. “Our mission is to plant, grow, and serve small workout groups for men for the invigoration of male community leadership. On most mornings of the week, I work out with my F3 brothers outside at 5:30 am. This has led me to run various trail races, road races, obstacle course races, participate in GORUCK challenges, and get in the best physical shape of my adult life. I think my patients deserve to see that I practice what I preach, that staying healthy in all aspects of life is a daily and deliberate choice.”
