Morgan Green, MD, is a Pediatric Resident in his final year of residency at University of California San Francisco Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland. He is a leader at the Center for Nature and Health and specifically helps with community engagement and resident curriculum within the SHINE program
SHINE is an initiative that helps to connect patients seen in clinic from all walks of life; whether that be low income patient populations, immigrants, refugees and people of color to the vast amount of regional parks in their community. SHINE seeks to expose the Oakland, CA, community to the resources available to them, but usually utilized by upper socioeconomic status.
Morgan received his medical degree (and found his wife, Tedean Green) at Loma Linda University. He is preparing to initiate a career as a Pediatric Hospitalist in Michigan starting in 2019. He hopes to take the tools he learned from the Center of Nature and Health to better integrate the benefits of outdoor play as a core interaction between physicians and patients
