This description of Gilles Julien's work was prepared when Gilles Julien was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2006.
Dr. Gilles Julien has redesigned the profession of the pediatrician to fundamentally transform today’s “sickness and disease” system into a health system that is truly preventive and community driven. Social pediatricians provide tools to communities and families that create a support network for children to embrace their physical, cognitive, emotional and cultural needs, and to guarantee that each child is monitored and supported as she/he develops.
