Who We Are /

Family Advisory Council

Your voice is important to us!

Parents are experts on what works. Our families want to promote awareness about children with special health care needs. You can help by offering fresh insights on what it’s really like to receive services from UIC’s Division of Specialized Care for Children.

We want to hear from you!

Family members from across the state meet a few times per year to provide ongoing and diverse family perspectives into the planning, implementation and evaluation of care coordination activities, as partners in the decision-making process.

Former Family Advisory Council member Gordon Jones says, “We get a chance to talk and bounce issues off each other and we have seen suggestions taken and implemented.”
