Renee Kinman (Curriculum and Instruction)

She also wanted to explore the parallels between medical education and K-12 education, and how these can intersect with public health. Renee’s graduate studies resulted in her being appointed as Associate Program Director of UCSF-Fresno’s pediatric residency program, which she has revamped to focus on community health, social justice, and advocacy. This important work, summarized in her thesis, includes partnering with local high schools’ health career pathways.
