Families Partnering in Research for
Children’s Health and Health Equity

This module explains why health research, particularly patient centered comparative effectiveness research, is important to improve healthcare for children experiencing health disparities. Families of color feel disconnected from and untrusting of medical research. Transforming Research as Usual (TRU) introduces the voices of families, patients and communities to research through Community Advisory Boards (CAB). CABs prioritize community needs to promote equitable research.

We need your feedback!
Please take the following survey.

The Family Empowerment and Disability Council invite you to respond to an annual evaluation survey on family empowerment center (FEC) activities.

FECs are funded by the California Department of Education to provide services to families with children with disabilities who are between the ages of 3 and 22 to ensure that parents, guardians, and families of children and young adults with disabilities have access to accurate information, specialized training, and peer-to-peer support. This survey asks questions about information, training, and support that you have received from your family empowerment center (SFCD).
