Health Systems Strengthening in Mexico

Patrick Newman MD, MPH is a pediatric hospitalist at UCSF-affiliate Marin General Hospital, and an Affiliate Faculty at IGHS.  He trained in Internal Medicine, Pediatrics and Global Health at the Harvard Combined Residency at the Brigham and Women’s / Boston Children’s Hospitals.  He is presently the Research Director at Compañeros en Salud, a Partners in Health project in Chiapas, Mexico.  Since 2012 he has been focusing on the design and evaluation of community health worker programs across 10 clinics in Sierra Madre de Chiapas, the poorest state in Mexico. The clinics serve patients in 142 rural communities, which tend to lack access to basic health services because of their remote location, lack of public and poor road conditions transportation.

Dr Newman also serves as a site mentor for HEAL fellows working in Chiapas, and conducts research in community health work. This lecture will touch on all these topics,  as part of the annual Pediatrics in Global Health lecture series.

Join the Global Child Health 4th Annual Lecture Series in welcoming Dr Newman.
