The Center will provide continuous learning opportunities to advance the development of providers, improve the systems they are working in and ultimately provide better care. The Center Fellowship supports the work of our early career faculty who are focused on the intersection of advocacy, public policy, social determinants and population health.
Current Fellow: Lucy Marcil, MD, MPH
Dr. Marcil has joined our Department as the inaugural Fellow in the Center for the Urban Child and Healthy Family. Lucy completed medical school at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and an Masters of Public Health from Johns Hopkins. During her pediatric residency in the Urban Health Track of the Boston Combined Residency Program, Lucy co-founded StreetCred, an innovative program offering financial services to the families we serve at BMC. StreetCred offers families the opportunity to complete their taxes and access anti-poverty programs while visiting their pediatrician’s office. In the 2017 tax season, StreetCred served over 400 families and returned more than $1,200,000 to patients served at BMC, the South End Community Health Center and Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. In the Center for the Urban Child and Healthy Family, Lucy will devote her energies to expanding the scope of services provided by StreetCred and disseminating our model to other sites across the country.
