CARBONDALE – Ted Grace’s Illinois medical license is now in question after surrendering his Ohio medical license this month after investigating how he handled allegations of sexual abuse against another doctor at Ohio State University.

Grace’s departure as director of Student Health Services at Southern Illinois University Carbondale was announced last week.

It did so at the same time it was revealed that he had surrendered his license to the Ohio State Medical Board – which was due to his oversight of Richard Strauss, a serial robber and former Ohio State University doctor in the 1990s.

Grace was notified of the investigation by the Ohio Medical Board last July. A similar complaint was made by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation.

In a complaint filed Monday, the State Department asked Grace to either revoke, suspend, or otherwise be reprimanded for his actions in Ohio.

The complaint set out the details of the Ohio investigation into how Grace was handling several complaints against Strauss by students who claimed they performed invasive or otherwise unnecessary tests, specifically her genitals.

“The foregoing acts and / or omissions by (Grace) are grounds for revocation or suspension of a Certificate,” the complaint stated.
