Serving the Family
Our mission at Children’s Medical Center Dallas has always been to make life better for children, and that includes serving the needs of the entire family. In keeping with that philosophy, Children’s has worked with the community to promote health in the family. Programs and resources include:
- YMCA of Metropolitan Dallas FREE healthy lifestyle program called “Get Up and Go 5-2-1-0”
- Pediatric Alliance is empowering families with knowledge to advocate for their children’s health, to understand, communicate, and manage their children’s needs, and to connect them with medical care homes and other resources that will help them develop, learn, and stay healthy.
- Social workers help find the resources families need so that they can concentrate their energy on their child and his treatment, not on other matters. They offer support for siblings as well as parents of patients.
- Children's Medical Center blog offers current wellness and health information from the physicians who practice at Children’s Health and experts for the whole family.
