UNIQUE PROGRAM AIMS TO GET PEDIATRICIANS INTO COMMUNITIES
 "" PHOTO
"" ""

UC Davis Children's Hospital established an innovative program for pediatricians-in-training that gets them out of the office and into neighborhoods to meet children's health-care needs.

The first program of its kind in the nation, the UC Davis Community Partnerships with Pediatricians for Healthy Children provides medical residents a grassroots experience in disadvantaged neighborhoods struggling to create the healthiest and safest environments for their children.

"To be more effective, we need to be in our patients' communities and neighborhoods," said UC Davis pediatrician and program developer Richard Pan.

The program, based on an existing child-advocacy effort at UC Davis and several Sacramento-area neighborhood collaboratives, will be expanded and formalized through a $1.8 million grant from the New York-based Dyson Foundation.
