About Dr. Parker

Steven Parker, MD graduated from Cornell University, University of Michigan Medical School and completed pediatric residency at Stanford University Hospital. He completed a fellowship at Children’s Hospital of Boston with T. Berry Brazelton in Child Development. He started his career in private pediatric practice but after 3 years joined the faculty at Boston University School of Medicine and Boston Medical Center (the former Boston City Hospital) and he became Director of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics in 1994, a position he served for over 13 years. He founded and directed the Comprehensive Care Program at BMC – a national model in family centered care for children with developmental disabilities. He published extensively on many areas in DBP and also was the voice of pediatrics for WebMD. His compassion, wisdom and insight in supporting children and families across Boston and the country will not be forgotten. In addition, he cofounded this conference in 1984 with Dr. Barry Zuckerman and it is in his memory that we hold the annual Steven J. Parker Memorial Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics Conference. We hope for all participants that it is an annual opportunity to revisit the topics that are at the core of pediatric practice and to remember Steve’s own advice for parents from his blog:

“Enjoy your kids! Enjoy the ride! Some day soon you’ll wonder how it all went by so fast and why you didn’t appreciate it more as it was happening.”
