Camille Robinson, MD, MPH, FAAP
Camille Robinson, M.D., M.P.H is a Pediatrics trained Adolescent Medicine fellow. She is originally from San Jose, California. She received her undergraduate degree in Nutritional Sciences from Howard University. Following completion of her undergraduate degree, she received a Master’s in Public Health with a Maternal and Child Health Concentration from the University of California, Berkeley and her M.D. from the University of California, San Francisco. It was while volunteering at the San Francisco Independent Living Skills Program that she developed her passion for working with foster youth aging out of care. Her clinical and research interests center around improving the well-being and physical health of vulnerable youth, specifically foster care- and juvenile justice-involved youth in order to promote resiliency and prevent the continuation of cycles of adversity that lead to health disparities. Specifically, her core research focus is on social support and relationships within adolescent and young adult social networks. Her current projects include: 1) examining correlates of family, peer, and special person support in African American female adolescents in sexual relationships, 2) exploring the association between important relationships within the social networks of child-welfare involved youth and emerging adulthood outcomes, and 3) using mixed methods, examining urban adolescent and young adult romantic dyads in which a STI diagnosis has occurred and the extent to which partner dynamics and social context influence sexual health. She was selected for the Building a Multidisciplinary Pipeline of Researchers in Child Abuse and Neglect: Summer Training Institute for Early Career Scholars and has been a 2015-2016 Academic Pediatric Association New Century Scholar. She has taken on leadership roles during residency and fellowship, including chair of Johns Hopkins Department of Pediatrics Diversity Council in 2015-2016 and she currently holds the office of secretary for the Chesapeake Chapter of the Society for Adolescent Health and Medicine. Her career plans include becoming a clinician-investigator at an academic institution with a focus on clinical work, research, and advocacy for vulnerable youth. Additionally, she has been a foster parent to an emerging adult that she and her husband have supported over the course of his adolescence.
