The WVU Department of Pediatrics faculty, staff, and students work in multidisciplinary teams with researchers in the four remaining health sciences schools: Dentistry, Nursing, Pharmacy, Public Health as well as other faculty from the Eastern and Charleston medical campuses and faculty from other departments throughout the University.

We would also like to showcase efforts our state chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (WVAAP) have been making in important societal areas including gun violence, vaccinations, and electronic cigarette use. The Quarterly Connection - September 2018  This work will provide important evidence-based research that will contribute to practice and policy in WV.
