Focus Group Opportunity

AJE is happy to share with families these opportunities from DC Health and Children’s National Medical Center.

The Parent Navigator Program at Children’s National is facilitating research-based focus groups for parents/caregivers and community advocates/stakeholders to identify met and unmet needs in the District of Columbia for children with special healthcare needs.

Supported by DC Health, these focus groups will also explore ways to improve community health and advance health equity.  Click on this link to learn more about the survey and register –
