Volunteer Spotlight

January 2017 - Family Advisory Council

Family Advisory Council members meet quarterly to discuss initiatives and programs, and council members also participate in our strategic planning. They are our sounding board for new programs and services, as their firsthand experience with pediatric feeding disorders is invaluable in making sure the parents' voices are heard. Several members are mentors in our Power of Two program, and many are community ambassadors who have brought Feeding Matters to Pennsylvania, Indiana, and Utah. Most recently, council members participated in the 5th Pediatric Feeding Conference as both faculty and volunteers.

Volunteer activities for Feeding Matters:

The Family Advisory Council brings the voice of all families together, and helps guide our programs from a parent perspective. Each of our 8 council members is dedicated, passionate, and a strong advocate when it comes to pediatric feeding disorders. The council helps Feeding Matters create enhanced programs for families and medical professionals to achieve our vision. Every council member is dedicated to helping put pediatric feeding disorders on the map to reduce the severity, longevity, and long-term costs of pediatric feeding disorders.
