Published by Brandt Perry on Feb 12, 2024

Are you a parent or caregiver navigating the complexities of Pediatric Feeding Disorder (PFD)? If so, you’re not alone. As a parent of two children facing these challenges, I intimately understand the hurdles that come with this condition. I’m thrilled to share an exciting opportunity that could reshape the future for families navigating PFD – the Feeding Matters Family-Centered PFD Research Consortium.

Understanding the Landscape
Feeding Matters, an organization close to my heart, is a world leader in the PFD field. Having actively volunteered and chaired the Family Advisory Council, I’ve witnessed firsthand their dedication and impact. Now, the Feeding Matters is taking a significant step forward with the Feeding Matters Family-Centered PFD Research Consortium.

A Personal Stake in Progress
As a parent deeply involved in this initiative, I am serving as the Primary Family Stakeholder Consultant. Leveraging my personal experiences, I’m working to ensure that the Consortium’s efforts authentically reflect the needs and perspectives of families like ours. This unique approach, engaging PFD families from the beginning, underscores Feeding Matters’ commitment to family-driven care and patient-centered research.

The Consortium’s objectives are essential for progress.
