Stanford Healthcare ValleyCare Hospitalist Team - Pleasanton
Food Allergies Across the World with Dr. Kathleen Jia
The Sean N. Parker Center for Allergy and Asthma Research at Stanford University leads and participates in many clinical trials to develop new therapies for allergic disorders. Our studies include a wide range of patients, representing a diverse group of ethnicities and socioeconomic backgrounds. We offer equal opportunity to all people with allergies and asthma, so long as they are eligible based on study parameters. For the latest information on trials currently being offered at Stanford and other institutions, please visit our website: http://med.stanford.edu/allergyandasthma.html
Kathleen will be presenting a 30-minute webinar on September 22, 2021.
The 2021 Stanford Healthcare ValleyCare Clinical Academy led by Dr. Alice Cha and Dr. Neel Chari has come to an end. It was a welcoming challenge for us to teach 42 students physical exam virtually, which transformed us into teachers that are more versatile. Our program speakers were from diverse institutions, including hospitalists from Stanford’s Medicine division, community physicians, and UCSF faculty. We are very appreciative of their collaboration and time. Our student’s demographics have also enveloped into a more diverse group this year. Most of them are from local high schools in the Tri-Valley area, yet sprinkled with students from the peninsula, East Bay, southern California, and even New York. We are also very pleased to announce we were able to grant one full scholarship to a low-income student based on their merit. Although it was 100% virtual, students received individual kits to participate in interactive suturing, dissection, and CPR training sessions. The Academy has sparked students to consider careers as physicians, physician assistants, and nurses.
