Clara Filice, MD/MPH ’07, MHS, has learned that one voice can represent millions.
As the Pediatric Environmental Health and Food Policy Fellow at the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), her reality is one where politics and physicians intersect.
“It is an exciting and optimistic time to be working in Washington as health reform is unfolding and children’s health issues become a part of the national agenda,” Dr. Filice says. “As a pediatrician, I believe advocacy on behalf of patients is central to my role, so I feel very fortunate to have this opportunity to help craft federal policy with children’s health in mind.”
