About Christina Scirica, MD, MPH

Dr. Scirica received her B.S. (summa cum laude) from Tufts University in 1995, and her M.D. from Harvard Medical School in 2000. She completed her pediatric residency and pulmonary fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH). In 2005, Dr. Scirica obtained her M.P.H. degree from the Harvard School of Public Health.

Since joining the Harvard Medical School faculty in 2008, Dr. Scirica has provided excellent clinical care to patients with a variety of pulmonary conditions. She has a particular interest in asthma, exercise intolerance, and weight-related conditions. In 2012, Dr. Scirica created a novel and highly-successful clinical program, called Inspired Health, to address the complex interactions between childhood asthma and weight by managing both in concert through a multidisciplinary, family-centered model of care. She has also partnered with the Appalachian Mountain Club to implement a program to promote outdoor physical activity among children and families.
Throughout her tenure at Harvard Medical School, Dr. Scirica has been committed to the education of medical students, trainees and patients, earning her the Resident Teaching Award from two separate graduating classes of Harvard Medical School. Dr. Scirica also contributes to the ongoing education of physicians and other healthcare providers through presentations and conferences, and recently directed a full-day course at the Mass General Brigham Asthma Center for nurses and other health educators on Sports, Exercise and Asthma.  In addition, Dr. Scirica has written numerous educational handouts and online articles for patients, and she has been interviewed by news organizations on topics related to her field of practice.
