Biography

Binny Chokshi, M.D., is an affiliate faculty member of the Child Health Advocacy Institute and a general pediatrician in the Division of Adolescent and Young Adult Medicine at Children's National Hospital. After graduating from Brown University with a concentration in community health, she completed medical school training at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx, New York. She then went on to complete her pediatric residency in the Community Health Track at Children's National Hospital. She also served as a chief resident in this program.

Dr. Chokshi joined the faculty at Children's National in 2015 and serves as the co-medical director of the Healthy Generations Program for adolescent teen parents and their children. Her research and education interests are focused on childhood adversity and trauma informed care in health care settings. She has developed web-based e-modules to train outpatient pediatricians to respond to childhood adversity with a trauma informed care approach and has trained medical students and residents at George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences. She has helped to structure clinical processes related to childhood adversity, including a hospital wide partnership with nursing to train hospital staff in trauma informed care.

Dr. Chokshi has completed the Master Teacher Leadership and Development Program and is currently a candidate for a master's in education at the George Washington University School of Education and Human Development.
