We are committed to train & develop community leaders and clinicians capable of educating, training, mentoring, and consulting to primary care physicians, early childhood educators, community organizations and families and collaborate with other leaders and clinicians to ensure positive outcomes and mitigate fragmentation, duplication of services, and waste of limited resources.
