Water First is a project that seeks to promote consumption of water instead of sugary drinks among students in elementary schools in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Volunteers will help the team with administrative and other research tasks at the Stanford office, including data entry. This is a great opportunity for a motivated individual who wants to learn more about public health, research, working in schools, pediatric populations, and nutrition.
Volunteers should commit to at least 5 hours per week.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.

To leverage the strengths of community-academic partnerships to improve nutritional behaviors and thereby reduce inequities in chronic diseases such as obesity and dental caries among pediatric populations. Our research has led to development of educational materials and toolkits, environmental changes to support healthy behaviors in schools and other community settings, and policy changes at the state and national level.
The Division of General Pediatrics improves the health and well-being of children through cross-disciplinary advancements in patient care, research, medical education, and advocacy and engagement.
