A pediatrician, Dr. Murray-García received an undergraduate degree from Stanford University, her medical degree from UCSF and completed pediatric residency training at Oakland Children’s Hospital, followed by a master’s degree in Public Health from UC Berkeley. For more than a decade, Murray-García has been involved in a unique school-community-youth partnership to close racial achievement and discipline gaps in Davis, California, public schools.
