Health systems strengthening in Chiapas, Mexico. Dr Newman has been working with Partners in Health since 2012 in quality improvement cycles addressing, training, retention, and service delivery across 10 clinics in Sierra Madre de Chiapas, the poorest state in Mexico. Collaborating with the Ministry of Health, he manages implementation of a community health worker program serving patients in 142 remote, rural communities.
Dr Newman 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 training and retention of health workers in Chiapas.
Dr Newman also serves as a site mentor for HEAL fellows working in Chiapas, and conducts research in community health work.
