Models to Reduce Poverty-Related Educational Disparities Utilizing the Primary Care Setting


Wednesday, March 1, 2017
Noon to 1 p.m.

IHRP's 5th floor Conference Room (561)
1747 W. Roosevelt Rd.

Reshma Shah, MD

Assistant Professor of Pediatrics
Director, Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics
UIC College of Medicine
IHRP Fellow

In this talk, Dr. Shah will examine how parenting behaviors impact early childhood developmental outcomes, precursors of later educational achievement. Population-level approaches, including the development of primary care–based programs, can foster new, positive parenting behaviors and reduce poverty-related educational disparities.

Dr. Shah will discuss these approaches as well as her pilot study of an intervention she's developing in UI Health pediatric clinics with funding by the National Institutes of Health and support by IHRP.

Anyone interested in public health, particularly social determinants of health and the development of population health interventions, should attend. Pediatricians, pediatric nurses, and educators also will find this presentation interesting.
