On behalf of the Transforming MA Pediatrics for Early Childhood (TMPEC) project at the Department of Public Health. I recently joined the TMPEC team as an Implementation Specialist, and I am looking forward to collaborating with you! We are seeking your assistance in recruiting primary caregivers of a child under age 8 who receives care at who receives care Brockton Neighborhood Health Center, Chelsea Healthcare Center, Boston’s Children’s Primary Health Care Center, Boston’s Children’s Martha Elliot Center, DotHouse Health, Greater New Bedford Community Health Center, Holyoke Health Center, Revere Health Center or South Boston Community Health Center to be a part of our Family Advisory Committee for the TMPEC project.
The Family Advisory Committee will meet monthly and contribute to all aspects of the project, including developing resources for pediatric teams who work with young children and their families and providing input on best practices for engaging families in pediatricians’ offices. We expect there will be one 1-hour Advisory Committee meeting per month in addition to a 1-hour orientation. All participation will be compensated to support family members’ time and expertise.
Attached are TMPEC Family Advisory Committee flyers available in multiple languages with links to an interest form in those languages. Please share these flyers with primary caregivers who receive care from your team at Boston Children’s Hospital Primary Care Center who might be interested in participating. We are accepting interest forms during the month of August and plan to hold an orientation in September. Our team at DPH will reach out to caregivers who complete the form to introduce ourselves and the project and discuss the opportunity to participate.
