Victoria Marie Parente

Assistant Professor of Pediatrics
Pediatrics, Hospital Medicine


I am a pediatric hospitalist and health services researcher with a faculty appointment in the Department of Pediatrics, Division of Hospital Medicine. The aim of my research is to reduce health inequities in the pediatric hospital setting.  Currently, my main projects are around improving racial and ethnic differences in medical team communication and caregiver (parent/guardian) empowerment on family-centered rounds.  Additional projects include addressing inpatient caregiver food insecurity, minimizing biased language in patient handoffs, and improving language access for families that use a language other than English in healthcare settings.
