The Child Protection Team is the clinical arm of the Division of Public Health Pediatrics. The public health arm of the division is the Center for Adversity, Resilience and Education (CARE) and is composed of doctoral and master’s level public health experts. The main focus of CARE is to identify, promote, and implement strategies to prevent adverse childhood experiences such as poverty, violence, inequality, homelessness, and lack of mental health, education and nutrition.




The Division of Public Health Pediatrics has a robust child abuse research agenda including early recognition of physical abuse and neglect, innovative imaging protocols for suspected abuse, injury recognition in the post-mortem evaluation, validation of clinical decision rules and neurodevelopmental outcomes. Additionally, the divisiion has funded research collaborations on maternal mental health/post-partum depression, community-based parent support programs, abusive head trauma prevention trial, food insecurity, parental opioid usage, early brain and language development, and foster care.




The Division of Public Health Pediatrics serves as teachers and mentors, helping our fellows reach their full potential.
