Carol Chen, MD, MPH, Improving Pediatric Emergency Care with the African Federation for Emergency Medicine

Lack of emergency medical care is an important factor contributing to lower survival rates of critically ill children in low resource settings, such as in Tanzania.  Dr. Carol Chen, MD FAAP, works with the African Federation for Emergency Medicine (AFEM) working group of pediatric emergency medicine (PEM) and global health experts to create freely available curriculum  to train providers across the continent of Africa. 

Dr. Chen is an Assistant Clinical Professor of Emergency Medicine and Pediatrics, and Affiliate Faculty at the Institute for Global Health Sciences. Her medical training was at Duke University, she earned an MPH at Johns Hopkins. She served residency at UCLA and trained in Pediatric Emergency Medicine and Global Health in fellowships at Baylor. She was awarded a Hellman Fellowship in 2018, allowing her to evaluate a novel pediatric emergency medicine curriculum in Tanzania.
