Dr. Patty Braun has been a pediatrician at Eastside Family Health Center for over20 years. Dr. Braun attended medical school at the University of Colorado and completed her pediatric residency at Yale University. She is originally from Colorado and so returned to Denver after her residency to be near her family. In 2009, she completed a Master’s in Public Health, and since then, has been busy conducting research at the University of Colorado Anschutz Pavilion. She focuses on improving the oral health of children (dental decay is the most common chronic condition of children and yet preventable). When you don’t see her at Eastside, she is working across Colorado on oral health projects. She is a mother of two children, and while being a mother is her favorite job, she knows it is also the hardest. She loves being outside and is proud to say that she has climbed all of Colorado’s mountains over 14,000 feet.
