Josh Schechtel, MD

  • Biography:

    I am a pediatrician in the intensive care nursery at the Oakland Medical Center in California. My career has been a varied one, working with children in private practice, county clinics, Kaiser Permanente clinics and hospitals. Urban and rural. Wealthy and poor. The similarities greatly outweigh the differences.

  • Later, inspired by my work on the Board of a community nonprofit organization, I returned to school for my Masters Degree in Public Health and briefly entered the world of health policy. I am still committed to several nonprofit groups, helping them make our communities healthier for everyone. The rest of my life is filled with family and friends, gardening, travel, and painting.
