Double-board certified physician in pediatrics and internal medicine, Dr. Stan Sonu advocates changing our health care system to deliver the highest-quality care to underserved and disadvantaged communities. Passionate about urban primary care, he strongly believes that in order to achieve system empathy, we need to recognize the health impact of adverse childhood stress and trauma. As a physician, double-boarded in both internal medicine and pediatrics, Stan is an advocate for changing our health care system to deliver the highest-quality care to underserved and disadvantaged communities. Currently, he is a Fellow in the Cook County Preventive Medicine and Public Health Program, and a LUCENT Fellow at the University of Chicago, a leadership program designed for physicians passionate about urban primary care. He is ardent about teaching and believes a fundamental aspect of changing the system is putting more research to the science of adverse childhood experiences and health impact of community trauma.
