Kelsey A. Egan, MD, MSc is a general pediatrician at Boston Medical Center and Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at the Boston University Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine. She has a BS in Human Biology, Health, and Society from Cornell University, an MD from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, and an MSc in Epidemiology from the Boston University School of Public Health.

Dr. Egan's research interests focus on improving clinical-community integration in order to decrease inequities in health outcomes for children and families. She is particularly interested in developing and implementing interventions to prevent food insecurity in early childhood, a critical time period of rapid growth and development that forms the foundation for future health and well-being. She is interested in the use of health information technology to improve integration between pediatric primary care and federal food assistance programs, including the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC).
