About Advocacy on Call
Advocacy On Call was built by pediatric providers who believe an understanding of child advocacy issues is essential to improving the health and well-being of children today. The goal of this site is to provide general information on child advocacy issues, engender child policy focused discussion and connect providers with local resources.
The site is maintained by current pediatric residents at Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, DC.
- We are always interested in improving the Advocacy On Call website. If you have suggestions or comments, please e-mail us at: email@example.com
