Immediate Past Chair

Josh Umbehr MD

Dr. Josh Umbehr joined Rainbows’ Communications committee in July 2012 and has helped guide Rainbows’ social media and communications efforts. He joined the Board of Directors beginning with 2014 and continues to lend his knowledge to the communications committee. A self proclaimed entrepreneur, when he sees a problem, his mind begins developing the solution.

He is a fan of Rainbows from both a personal and professional perspective. “As a parent of a child with special needs and a physician, my goal is to help facilitate and improve the connections that make a difference to these families,” he said. “My family has experienced firsthand the services Rainbows provides families. Our oldest daughter, Katelyn, has Down syndrome and received regular services through Infant/Toddler Services.

He is involved with Rainbows by reaching out to those with special needs and their families in an effort to connect them with community resources, such as Rainbows, and other local support organizations. “Rainbows was an invaluable resource and support to our family prior to our daughter entering the public school system; we are grateful for the services they provided to us and the other families,” said Dr. Josh.

Dr. Josh is married to Lisa and dad to Katelyn, Paige and Cole.
