Pediatrician Seeks Parents’ Input To Improve Healthcare For South Asian Children

Press Release
04/20/2017

Maya Ragavan, MD, is a pediatrician at Boston Medical Center. Dr. Ragavan is partnering with Saheli for a research study with the aim of improving healthcare for South Asian children. She seeks 10 parents to participate in interviews regarding how parents make decisions to take their children to the pediatrician. Her first 10 interviews were very positive. If you would like to participate, please schedule an interview and email, text, or call Maya Ragavan (maya.ragavan@bmc.org, 650-644-9954).

Dr. Ragavan thanks all who participated in the research study through Boston Medical Center to better understand Asian parents’ perspectives about bringing their children to the pediatrician. “There are recorded disparities in Asian children’s access to healthcare, which we are trying to explore more deeply. We have completed 10 interviews with South Asian parents to date. The interviews so far have been rich and incredibly interesting. Participants have compared experiences visiting doctors in South Asia versus the United States, and have provided useful information about how to improve well-child care for South Asian families.

“We are hoping to interview 10 more parents to further understand this topic and are requesting your help! If you are a parent with a child 21 years of age or younger and were born outside of the United States, you are eligible to participate. We are interested in interviewing both men and women.”

The interview takes about 30 minutes and can be scheduled at any time that is convenient for participants. To thank participants for their time, they will receive a $30 gift card after completing the interview.

Dr. Ragavan hopes to use these interviews to improve pediatric care for Asian children. “Thank you for your participation and support!”Maya Ragavan, MD, is a pediatrician at Boston Medical Center.
