NPA's commitment to Family Support is exemplified by our
Family Advocacy Network
The Family Advocacy Network (FAN) champions collaborative relationships between families and the medical professions who care for them.
FAN brings together family advocates from every arena of maternal-infant care to share their ideas and cultivate their talents as we address the medical, educational, and psychosocial needs of families.
Join us as we work together to bring real, measurable, and substantive progress in the implementation of family-centered care.
Co-Chairs: Cheryl Milford, MEd. and Erika Goyer
