Pediatric Advocacy Program

Community Engagement

We actively partner with a diverse group of community organizations across the Bay Area to promote child health and reduce local disparities. Our work is driven by community identified needs and solutions.

Research

We strive to conduct rigourous community-engaged research to advance evidence regarding prevalent health disparities and innovative approaches to reduce inequalities.


Education

A priority of the Pediatric Advocacy Program is to educate pediatric residents and medical students in the principles of community engagement and advocacy. 


Advocacy

We strive to advocate for children and families locally, regionally and nationally. A group of dedicated pediatric residents and faculty regularly engage in efforts to advocacte for programs and policies that promote the health and wellbeing of vulnerable children and families.

One of our groups that speerheads advocacy is the Stanford University’s Families at the Border (FATB), formed on July 2019 to discuss our current border crisis. If you would like to learn more about how to get involve and support, please click here.
