Maureen Strafford

Maureen Strafford, MD, is associate professor of public health and community medicine, anesthesiology, and pediatrics at Tufts University School of Medicine. Maureen’s training in pediatric cardiology and anesthesiology led to her being part of the first multidisciplinary pediatric pain-management program more than 25 years ago. The program investigated sedation for painful procedures in children, the stress response during cardiac surgery, and the use of mindfulness meditation for children and families. Maureen is a member of Child Kind International, a group of international pediatric pain specialists who hope to engage institutional commitment to pediatric pain management nationally and internationally.
