Oregon Center for Children and Youth with Special Health Needs
I am mother of two children, one of whom is a teenager who is medically complex, and wife who works full time. OCCYSHN recruited me to serve on the Advisory Team for Oregon's Children with Medical Complexity (CMC) CoIIN Advisory Team to provide parent perspective. I have served in this role during grant years 1 and 2. I am a member of the Oregon CoIIN Family Involvement Workgroup, a subcommittee of the Advisory Team, and helped to develop the research design, collect, analyze, and summarize interview data from other Oregon parents of young adults (18-22 years) who are medically complex. I am passionate about improving education and healthcare systems to better serve children and youth with special health care needs and their families.
