Dr. Wise is one of nine Stanford faculty that have been elected membership to this prestigious society, as detailed in Stanford News. Dr. Wise is the Richard E. Behrman Professor of Child Health and Society, professor of pediatrics, and a Senior Fellow in the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies, whose work focuses on health inequalities, maternal and child health policy, and health in areas of violent conflict, political instability and weak governance.
During an interview about this honor, Dr. Wise stated that “recognition is important, but I see it as more important as a platform to act in the real world.”
The Handa Center admires his cross-disciplinary work and dedication to the human rights of children in conflict and is honored to have Dr. Wise on our Faculty Advisory Board.
