On April 20-21, 2017, we held the 7th Annual Partners in Care Summit.
A highlight this year was child and youth advocate, Julie Beckett, a co-founder of Family Voices, a national grassroots organization of families and friends speaking on behalf of and with children and youth with special health care needs. She was instrumental in the 2005 passage of the Family Opportunity Act, which established the Family-to-Family Health Information Centers.
Our 7th Annual Summit in 2017 was a great success!
