We understand that parents and families are a child's best source of support and care. We work with parents and families to provide coordinated primary care that gives your child the opportunity for a lifetime of better health. Our medical home approach to care enables our team to offer your child continuous care, better preventative care, and access to medical specialists.
The division is active in community outreach and advocacy. We have programs designed to help children manage their weight. We work with children who have been sexually abused and offer ways for parents and children to deal with aggression and anger problems.
The things we learn in clinic help us discover new ways to improve the health of children worldwide. Research in the division is seeking to improve important public health problems affecting children such as obesity, asthma, and access to health care. The division is also teaching the next generation of doctors.
