This passion is something Dr. Silverstein pursues here at BMC as well as outside the hospital, having served as the medical Director at Action for Boston Community Development Head Start for more than seven years. He also sits on several committees whose objectives are concerned with improving access to and quality of care for disadvantaged populations. He lives in the Boston area with his wife and two children.
