Lucy Marcil, MD, MPH is an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics in General Pediatrics at the Boston University School of Medicine.
She is the co-founder of Boston Medical Center’s (BMC) StreetCred program, which provides free tax services to families who are eligible to receive the Earned Income Tax and Child Tax Credits – all completed while they are visiting the pediatrician’s office.
Dr. Marcil has found her passion working with children and creating innovative solutions to help alleviate the adversity and stress of those living in poverty. During her residency at BMC, Marcil and StreetCred co-founder, Michael Hole, MD, MBA, recognized many of their patient families were eligible for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), but they weren’t receiving it because they were not filing taxes, were unaware of their eligibility or were losing money to for-profit tax preparation.
Internationally, Dr. Marcil has undertaken pediatric health-systems strengthening. As a HIV/AIDS & Community Health Peace Corps volunteer in Namibia, she leveraged public-private partnerships to create a comprehensive orphan care program and girls’ leadership camps. In Bangladesh, she identified community engagement methods to build maternal-child healthcare systems in urban slums. In Kenya, she consulted for Jacaranda Health to transform newborn care systems.
For her work, Dr. Marcil has been recognized with the American Academy of Pediatrics Anne E. Dyson Child Advocacy Award and the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Quinn Prize, and has been named a Café 100, Davidson College Game Changer and 2018 TED Fellow.
