About Brittany N. Blockman

Biography

Brittany Blockman, MD, MA, FAAP, specializes in integrative, lifestyle, and non-pharmacologic approaches to youth living with a wide spectrum of chronic illnesses, including physical, behavioral, and mental health conditions. She assesses and advises on a number of topics, including symptom management, nutrition/food-as-medicine, supplements, movement, sleep/rest, stress reduction, mind-body skills, resilience-building practices, medical hypnosis, mental health, lifestyle/behavior change, and environment/relationships. She also conducts mind-body and resilience group visits for teens living with chronic illness. Referrals may be provided to appropriate pediatric providers for services such as acupuncture, massage therapy, biofeedback, nutrition, and psychotherapy. 

Dr. Blockman's vision is to transform the experience of pediatric illness for patients and families into an opportunity for lifelong wellness, health enhancement, and resilience-building. She is passionate about patient/family empowerment, prevention, and whole-person healing to restore and optimize health and quality of life. She is committed to working with families and their children over time to adjust or change treatments as needed to help ensure a child’s long-term success.

In addition to her clinical practice, Dr. Blockman serves as the medical director of St. Luke’s pediatric integrative medicine program. Prior to her role at St. Luke’s, Dr. Blockman was a faculty member at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF)’s Osher Center for Integrative Medicine, one of the most renowned integrative medicine centers in the world. As a pediatric program leader, she helped bring integrative medicine to UCSF Pediatrics at large through innovative clinical and medical education initiatives. She established and managed Communitas, a mind-body and resilience group medical visit program for youth living with chronic illness and their caregivers, which became a model for group medical visits at UCSF and beyond. She also established the UCSF Osher Center’s Integrative Pediatric Clinic for Chronic Illness. Additionally, Dr. Blockman is the founder and director of Communitas Health, a non-profit organization that provides immersive, integrative medicine education, peer support, and empowerment with self-care skills for youth living with chronic illness and their family members.

Dr. Blockman completed her pediatric residency at University of California, San Francisco’s Pediatric Leadership for the Underserved program, where she was recognized by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) with the Anne Dyson Award for her child health advocacy work. Dr. Blockman was then invited to be the first clinical fellow in integrative medicine at UCSF’s Osher Center for Integrative Medicine. She is a certified practitioner of mind-body medicine from the Center for Mind Body Medicine and has training in medical hypnosis from The National Pediatric Hypnosis Training Institute. 
 
Dr. Blockman earned a bachelor's degree in anthropology from Princeton University and a master's degree in medical anthropology from Harvard University. She graduated from Tulane University School of Medicine, where she was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society and received the Tulane 34 Award, the university’s most prestigious student honor.

In her free time, Dr. Blockman enjoys spending time outdoors, gardening, cooking, and having adventures with her children and husband.
