Dr. Lynn Silver, a pediatrician and public health advocate, is Senior Advisor at the Public Health Institute and Clinical Professor at University of California San Francisco. She focuses on policies to prevent noncommunicable disease, its risk factors and inequitable impact. Her interest in local marijuana regulation arose from her experience as a public health official and belief that public health oriented measures are needed now to protect against youth and problem use in the setting of a rapidly expanding new legal industry for a product with significant harms.
