Some serve rural U.S. communities, while others pursue careers that improve health globally.

These scientists also are dedicated to preventing health problems through the promotion of child wellness.
The Department of Child Health believes that having diverse faculty, staff, residents and students enhances the quality of our clinical, research, teaching and advocacy programs.
