Our Clinical Grand Rounds series continues with a presentation by Abigail Schlesinger, MD, a national expert on providing behavioral health services in primary care settings.
Dr. Schlesinger is a pediatric psychiatrist who is especially interested in increasing access to quality behavioral health and developmental services for children and families. She has been instrumental in the development of Children’s Community Pediatrics Behavioral Health (CCPBH), a service that embeds therapists and psychiatrists in pediatric primary care.
