District IX Chair Candidate: Zoey Goore, MD, FAAP
Dr. Zoey Goore is a Pediatric Hospitalist at The Permanente Medical Group in Roseville, CA (near Sacramento). She started her career as an outpatient general pediatrician. Then switched to hospital-based medicine, in part, so there would be weekday flexibility to volunteer for AAP and in the community. The hospital in Roseville is a tertiary referral center serving a catchment area with a roughly 90- mile radius. Dr. Goore holds several leadership positions within her medical group which gives insight into the work lives and struggles of outpatient and inpatient pediatricians, pediatric sub-specialists, pediatric surgeons, and neonatologists.
Within the Academy, Dr. Goore held many positions on chapter and national levels. These experiences have given her the opportunity to learn from pediatricians all over the country in a variety of practice types. These experiences have also made her even more committed to efforts to improve the lives of families and the pediatricians and providers who serve them.
Personally, my preferred pronouns are she/her. Dr. Goore and her husband have two adult (20 and 18) children and will be empty nesters this fall as they continue their education. She is also the emotional support animal to a marshmallow-colored golden retriever.
