Families of Children with Health Complexity

Children with complex health care needs are a sentinel population for shortcomings in the organization and financing of children’s health care in the U.S. This invitational symposium identified and discussed issues within the general child health care system that have particular salience for the care of children with complex health problems. It provided a forum to learn from those making progress on these issues as well as those working in adult health care and health policy. Participants engaged in dialogue to identify solutions to the issues, make recommendations for adoptions of those solutions in practice, programs, and policy.

We're pleased to share that our director, Rylin Rodgers, was the keynote speaker. You can listen to her presentation below.
