Barry Zuckerman, M.D.
Barry Zuckerman, M.D. is The Joel and Barbara Alpert Professor of Pediatrics at Boston University School of Medicine, Chief of Pediatrics at Boston Medical Center and Family Service of Greater Boston’s 2012 Family Legacy Award recipient. In support of Dr. Zuckerman’s international dedication and leadership in health and child development disparities, Family Service of Greater Boston is honored to award and recognize him for his great contributions. His most important scientific contributions involve identifying factors contributing to low birth weight including drugs, alcohol and maternal health and most recently, gene environment interaction. 

Dr. Zuckerman’s advocacy for better health has allowed low income families, especially with young children, to better meet their health care needs. His efforts have impacted the health and development of children involved in Family Service’s Strong Start Program by encouraging early education through his program Reach Out and Read, as well as his organization HealthLeads, which is now a national organization that uses college volunteers working in primary care settings for low income children to connect parents with community based resources. Dr. Zuckerman’s accomplishments have been so extraordinary that they have been highlighted by First Lady Michelle Obama as an important service effort!
Dr. Zuckerman is an inspiration, not only for our communities in Boston, but internationally as well. We are honored to award Dr. Zuckerman the Family Legacy Award for his outstanding commitment to the most vulnerable members of our communities and their health care needs. 
Please join us on October 4th in honoring Dr. Zuckerman, and the many members of community who make it possible for us to help families me families. We hope to see you there!
