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.


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



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


We strive to advocate for children and families locally, regionally and nationally. Under the direction of Lisa Chamberlain, MD, MPH (Associate Chair for Community-engagement and Advocacy), 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.
