Community Doc Talks is a health education program for low-resourced families with children ages 0-5.

Health Stars is now Community Doc Talks!


Doc Talks brings volunteer pediatricians into the communities they serve to engage with families in their own neighborhoods. This is done to better understand the challenges these families face in achieving a healthy lifestyle.

The program addresses key child health issues which include:

  • Sleep
  • Health/Oral Health
  • Physical Activity
  • Conflict
  • Bonding
  • Nutrition
  • Parental Support

Clinicians lead interactive discussions in a fun, engaging environment with the goal of building parents’ trust as well as their confidence with their own child interactions and parenting skills. Community Doc Talks also works to connect families with local resources to meet their health, social and behavioral needs.
