Jessie Duvall, MDPediatrics Faculty
Dr. Duvall (she/her/hers) was raised in Idaho and California. She graduated from the University of Washington School of Medicine in 2011, during which time she took a year to work on environmental justice issues. She completed residency at the University of California San Francisco Pediatric Leaders Advancing Health Equity (PLUS) Program, where she was trained to recognize and address structural causes of health inequity. She returned home to Idaho a few years ago and is thrilled to be a part of the Full Circle Health faculty.
Dr. Duvall is most passionate about social justice and health equity and sees advocacy as integral to her clinical practice and educational philosophy. She cares deeply about addressing racism and bias in medicine and is a founding member of the Idaho Health Equity Collective. She loves being an educator and co-directs the Advocacy 101 Course for physician trainees in Idaho. She believes all justice work must be rooted in community and is very involved in a variety of public advocacy activities including efforts to protect gender affirming care and reproductive health in Idaho.
As a provider, Dr. Duvall enjoys caring for young people of all ages, from newborn to young adult. Her clinical interests include adolescent medicine, behavioral health, whole person care, gender affirming care, and mind body medicine (MBM). She respects and honors all chosen identities of her patients and strives to incorporate social and environmental determinants of health into care plans. She meets patients and families where they are and partners with them to get the care that works best for them. Dr. Duvall volunteers as the medical director for programs focused on getting youth outside and has helped run MBM retreats for teens with chronic illness. Her past clinical experiences include faculty in the UCSF Transitional Care unit, outpatient pediatrics at an FQHC with a focus on Adverse Childhood Experiences, pediatric hospital medicine, and pediatric palliative care.
Thrilled to be back in Idaho, Dr. Duvall relishes spending long days with her community, petting all animals she comes across, making a mess in the kitchen, playing board games with her partner, and chasing her little one around. She loves being outside in any way possible – especially backpacking, backcountry skiing, and exploring the rivers.
