Children's Hospital is part of the UPMC family.
Family Forum members may serve in one or more programs based on their interest, skills and departmental needs. In addition, opportunities are available for members to serve on focus groups and on special projects.
Family Faculty is an ongoing project of Family Forum. The goal of Family Faculty is to prepare members to teach physicians and staff about the experience of health and illness within a patient family. Through sharing their own stories, families illustrate how health care professionals can best partner with families in the delivery of pediatric health care.
