We are excited to host Dr. Robyn Cohen, Associate Professor of Pediatrics at Boston University School of Medicine, and Director of Boston Medical Center Pediatric Pulmonary & Allergy Clinic.

Dr. Cohen will discuss the multilevel factors contributing to the high degree of asthma morbidity among low-income urban children and what a dedicated group of clinicians are doing to help their community breathe a little easier.

About Dr. Robyn Cohen

Dr. Robyn Cohen started her medical training at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx, where she had the great fortune of having the amazing Jaymi Formaggio as her roommate. She then followed Jaymi's footsteps into the Social Pediatrics residency program at the Children's Hospital at Montefiore.

Once immersed into the epicenter of the pediatric asthma epidemic in the Bronx, she entered a pediatric pulmonary fellowship at Boston Children's Hospital and a post-doctoral research fellowship in respiratory epidemiology at the Brigham and Women's hospital, during which time she also gained her Master in Public Health at the Harvard School of Public Health. Since completing her training, her clinical and research career has focused on pediatric respiratory health disparities, specifically asthma in low-income urban populations and the pulmonary complications of sickle cell disease.

There is no cost for this event.  Breakfast will be provided. Both members and friends of CBE are welcome to attend this event.

At this time, we plan to hold this event in person only.  When you sign up, you will have the opportunity to let us know that you want to attend, but can only attend via Zoom.  We will revisit the "in person only" decision based on responses.

The “Science with a Schmear” breakfast is funded by the Scientists in Synagogues program and is co-sponsored by the CBE Brotherhood.


You will receive an email with the Zoom link.

If you made a donation, you will be taken to payment screens.
