David J. Schonfeld, MD, FAAP, a world-renowned expert in school crisis and bereavement, has been appointed chair of the Department of Pediatrics at Drexel University College of Medicine. He is also the Pediatrician-in-Chief at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children. Dr. Schonfeld’s worldwide reputation and expertise extends from pediatric bereavement to pediatric AIDS education and cancer prevention. His expertise in crisis response and bereavement has made him a sought-after authority in the U.S., as well as in Asia, Europe, and elsewhere in the world. He is the founder and director of the National Center for School Crisis and Bereavement, which specializes in providing information and support to children and schools after crises, like a shooting or natural disaster. “Since children spend half of their waking hours in school, a school is the ideal location to provide support,” he says. “The center provides tools that schools need to help students heal.” Dr. Schonfeld provided pediatric bereavement and school crisis consultation in the aftermath of Hurricanes Sandy, Katrina, and Ike, as well as after the shootings in Aurora, Colorado and recently in Newtown, Connecticut. Because of his work in Newtown, Schonfeld has been named to the Sandy Hook Advisory Commission which will make recommendations on school safety, mental health, and gun violence prevention.
