Health Care Providers and Social Workers
"I am so grateful to have you! The resource is available, responsive and I am confident when I send a patient there that they will be treated well...We need more of the [Pediatric Advocacy Initiative] as the needs are only increasing."
"Services have helped address barriers that prevented patients from attending appointments, whether the barriers were tangible or emotional."
"Thank you so much for all you have done to assist me in the ongoing battle to secure my son an appropriate education. You have blessed me and my family tremendously."
"I want to thank you and everyone involved with my son there at the wonderful University of Michigan Pediatric Advocacy program. Today was my son's first annual IEP (Individualized Education Program) at the Michigan School for the Deaf. The staff there have continued an excellent performance with my son's needs and have added a one-on-one sign language interpreter to be side-by-side with him 30 hours week. For me, my story finally has a fairy-tale ending. Thank you so much."
