This project was founded by the mother of two chronically ill children and a UCSF pediatrician practicing integrative medicine. Together we have created a project to address the pervasive need for information, support, and the resources necessary to create the ecology of care for chronically ill children.
Our program model recognizes that the entire system of care needs support. Providers and caregivers need to work together to have best-practices vertically integrated throughout the system of care - from patient to policy. We work with peer groups to improve skills, apply research, increase access to information, and to create networks of care. We work with patients, families, caregivers, providers, and institutions. We are particularly committed to ensuring that low-income and other vulnerable caregiver communities have access to resources and support.
