Specifically, we:
- Provide evidence-based, family-centered, culturally competent, pediatric primary care to children living in underserved communities.
- Provide innovative, evidence-based education to medical students, residents, fellows, and allied health professionals.
- Develop and disseminate high impact research in common pediatric problems, novel treatment approaches, best practices, health outcomes and innovative models of service delivery.
- Advocate through leadership and partnership in promoting child and family health at hospital, community, regional and national levels.
With an international reputation for research focused on ear infections, we collaborate across divisions, departments, schools, and institutions in far reaching areas of study.
