Throughout his academic career, Dr. Shapiro has maintained a public health focus and in 2005, he designed childhood safety guidelines for the largest national specialty retailer of juvenile products for infants and young children. More recently, Dr. Shapiro participates in office-based research studies in coordination with the American Academy of Pediatrics where the ultimate goal is to improve the health of all children.
Dr. Shapiro currently practices as a general pediatrician and partner in an extremely busy pediatric practice in Encino, California caring for newborns, college students, and all ages in between. He has been on active staff at a variety of hospitals/medical centers throughout the Los Angeles area which has given him the opportunity to not only teach medical residents but give seminars to soon-to-be parents. In January of 2012, he became Vice Chief of Pediatrics at Providence Tarzana Medical Center in Tarzana, California.
When not spending time with his family, which includes three children ages 5-11 years, he also enjoys blogging about any topic related to children and their overall well-being.
