Director, Community Pediatrics Training: Jeffrey Kaczorowski, MD
Dr. Kaczorowski is Director of the national Community Pediatrics Training Initiative (CPTI) at the AAP. CPTI’s mission is to advance the field of community pediatrics through support of residency training activities that empower future pediatricians to become leaders in improving the health of all children in their communities. He edited a 2005 special Supplement to Pediatrics entitled “Community Pediatrics: Making Child Health at the Community Level an Integral Part of Pediatric Training and Practice,” which contains 14 articles and 7 commentaries; he co-authored the lead article with David Satcher, MD, PhD. He is also editor of the Pediatric Clinical Advisor. This textbook contains a special section on health care for vulnerable children, including children in foster care, immigrant children, children of incarcerated parents, and children with mothers with depression. He brings passion, scholarship, and rigor to community pediatrics training. Locally, he is Director of the Children’s Agenda, a community-based leadership group that focuses on key issues relevant to vulnerable children. He co-directs the PLC/CARE program, along with Andrew Aligne, MD. These projects enable him to involve trainees in community activities at both local and national-levels.
