The Friends of CDC’s National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities is excited to announce that Family Voices (National) has been selected as its Family Liaison.
The overarching purpose of this Family Liaison is to enhance the reach of the Friends of NCBDDD to families. Family Voices will advise the Friends and contribute to educational strategies that enhance communication between families and key target audiences of the Friends of NCBDDD including policy makers, non-government organizations, and service providers. Family Voices brings a national and state presence of family-led health promotion and service programs, as well as demonstrated experience in listening to and including the input of families in programs. Family Voices will encourage involvement of family members, parents, and people living with a disability in Friends of NCBDDD activities in our four thematic focus areas.
Many thanks to the review panel, which included several members of the Executive Committee: Angela Blackwell, Roberta Carlin, Mary Andrus, and Patrick Johnson.
