Dr. Kevin Churchwell
President and CEO, Boston Children's Hospital
As executive vice president for health affairs and chief operating officer for Boston Children’s, Churchwell established the hospital’s Office of Health Equity and Inclusion in 2016—one of three such institutions he started. Four years later, the hospital published its Declaration for Equity, Diversity and Inclusivity, which includes six goals geared toward addressing disparities and supporting anti-racist polices. In 2021, under Churchwell’s leadership as its newly appointed CEO, the hospital launched the Sandra L. Fenwick Institute for Pediatric Health Equity and Inclusion. The institute’s focus includes research, fellowships for early- and mid-career faculty, and public policy advocacy.
