Steven Chen, MD, as the Chief Medical Officer of ALL IN Alameda County, brings an integrative health equity lens to ALL IN’s work on poverty. He is leading the scale and spread of a Food as Medicine model across Alameda County health clinics, health systems, and food systems. His areas of expertise include integrative medicine, health equity, and innovative models of care that address social determinants of health (SDOH) and improve health outcomes. As the former Medical Director at Hayward Wellness, an FQHC clinic in the Alameda Health System, he and his team developed an innovative “Food as Medicine” model that is clinically integrated and bundles together a variety of interventions to improve health: a “food farmacy” and food prescriptions through a partnership with a local farm, a “social needs pharmacy” to connect patients to community resources, and a group medical visit “behavioral pharmacy” that combines movement, nutrition, stress reduction, and social support.

Dr. Chen’s commitment to a more just and inclusive world is informed by his experiences as a son of immigrants and a 2nd generation Taiwanese American. He is interested in somatic approaches to healing social and historical traumas. He is committed to utilizing all possible tools to ensure health and wellbeing.

A graduate of Stanford University and Stanford School of Medicine, Dr. Chen is a board-certified family medicine physician who completed his residency training at UCSF-San Francisco General Hospital.
