About the Advocacy Pathway

Created by MOCARE, a statewide collaborative comprised of all four pediatric residency training programs in Missouri, the Pathway aims to create advocacy leaders by supporting residents with a serious interest in putting advocacy and community pediatrics at the forefront of their pediatric career.

Residents will learn about:

  • Child health disparities
  • The drivers of disparities at the state and national level
  • What pediatricians can do about disparities by:
    • working in the community
    • leveraging the media
    • impacting health policy
