We are a dedicated group of clinicians, educators, and researchers who unite to advance child health. We value equity, advocacy, excellence, and innovation as we strive to promote compassionate, evidence-based care. We approach our work with joy and humility, engaging in community partnerships, striving for social justice, addressing the unique and evolving needs of every child, and shaping future generations of experts in pediatric care and research.

We strive to advance child health at the local, regional, national, and international levels by:

  • Training future generations of pediatric experts through excellence in mentorship and medical education.
  • Leveraging the broad expertise of our faculty to engage in innovative scientific discovery, and translate new knowledge into practice to address the evolving needs of pediatric care and population health.
  • Partnering with communities to address the social determinants of health and to collaboratively intervene on the policies and factors that influence these determinants.

Leadership

Acknowledgment of Stolen Land and Stolen People

We acknowledge the Coast Salish people of this land, the land which touches the shared waters of all tribes and bands within the Suquamish, Tulalip, Duwamish, and Muckleshoot nations. We thank the original caretakers of this land who are still here.

We acknowledge the full extent of what was stolen from Black people in this country as a result of slavery and continued systematic oppression, and honor the legacy and richness of the African Diaspora.
