Marissa Hauptman, MD, MPH, FAAP is a mother, practicing board-certified general pediatrician, environmental medicine physician-scientist, and co-director for the Boston Children’s Pediatric Environmental Health Center and the Region 1 New England Pediatric Environmental Health Specialty Unit. Each week, in addition to her general pediatrics practice, she provides multidisciplinary clinical care for children with lead poisoning, mold exposure, asthma and other environmentally-mediated disease processes. Her career is dedicated to mitigating environmental and climate injustices for pediatric and reproductive-aged populations through the intersection of public health and medicine. Her work particularly focuses on the importance of systematically integrating and leveraging geospatial and biological markers of environmental exposures and screening tools into pediatric medicine. She has an NIH/NIEHS K23 Career Development Award and recently became an inaugural Chief Medical Advisor to the Bureau of Climate and Environmental Health at the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.

Dr. Hauptman has leveraged her expertise as a physician-scientist in pediatric environmental medicine to make important clinical advances and innovations in the field of childhood lead poisoning and other environmental and climate justice issues. She has received numerous local, regional and national awards for her research and dedication to addressing environmental and climate injustices for pediatric populations. These accolades include the Boston Combined Residency Program Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Faculty Honor Roll (2022-23), the Rhode Island Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program Healthy Housing Award (2007), the American Academy of Pediatrics Section on Allergy and Immunology Outstanding Abstract Award (2016), the Academic Pediatric Association Fellow Research Award (2015) and the Academic Pediatric Association Michael Shannon Research Award (2017).
