Lisa Chamberlain, MD, MPH is Professor of Pediatrics, Associate Chair of Policy and Community, and director of the Office for Child Health Equity in Stanford’s Department of Pediatrics. Her academic focus is on reducing pediatric disparities. As Stanford’s Harman Faculty Scholar she studies the evidence base for “Kinder Ready Clinics”, bridging the early childhood education and pediatric sectors to reduce educational inequity. Her health services research examines children with medical complexity, which led her to work Sacramento around Title V reform, increasing access to care in California. She is founder and co-director of the Stanford Pediatric Advocacy Track, a nationally replicated program training pediatricians to address child poverty through community and policy engagement, now a national requirement. She co-founded the California Collaborative which trains over 800 pediatricians a year, now modeled in 8 other states. She is the recipient of many national and local awards for her work, including the inaugural Child Advocacy Award at Stanford’s Department of Pediatrics. A frequent Stanford lecturer, she has been awarded two of its highest teaching awards.
